Abstract

Turbulence and physics of energetic particles

I shall discuss a few processes of particle acceleration (a) acceleration by turbulent reconnection, (b) acceleration by shocks with enhancing magnetic field by turbulent dynamo, (c) stochastic acceleration in Alfvenic turbulence. I shall also discuss the suppression of the streaming instability by turbulence and show the effects of this on the observed cosmic ray anisotropies.
