Canonization and Diagonalization of an Infinite Dimensional Noncanonical Hamiltonian System: Linear Vlasov Theory
Languages of publication
The Vlasov-Poisson equation, which is an infinite dimensional non-canonical Hamiltonian system, is linearized about a stable homogeneous equilibrium. Canonical variables for the resulting linear system are obtained. A coordinate transformation is introduced that brings the system, which possesses a continuous spectrum, into the action-angle form where the linearized energy is diagonal.
