I am working on mathematical questions which are related to the understanding of wave
particle interactions in plasma physics, nuclear magnetic resonance, or particle physics.
A recent preprint can be found here:

Another part of my recent works is devoted to the study of chorus waves.
Chorus waves are beautiful songs
which are sung by all stellar and planetary magnetospheres. In the case of the Earth (dipole model for the
external magnetic field), they are called the dawn chorus.
This electromagnetic intermittency phenomenon
can be triggered by trapped electron mode turbulence. It is based on a mechanism of wave-particle interaction.
It still hold many mysteries. Some mathematical interpretation has just been given in the publication:
In the case of collisionless axisymmetric plasmas immersed in a strong magnetic field,
the turbulent transport

can also be described through a deterministic approach, see the preprint:
are coming from a mesoscopic caustic
effect due to the crossing in the cotangent bundle
of two geometrical objects. The first is the trace at mirror points of a Lagrangian submanifold issued from
the long time dynamics of charged particles. The second is the
characteristic variety that is associated to the
relativistic Vlasov-Maxwell equations, see the article:
and see the preprint:
In the presence of a strong magnetic field, the characteristic variety sustaining electromagnetic
wave propagation may reveal surprising aspects.
As a matter of fact, an oscillating wave with time frequency τ and space frequency ξ can persist if and only if τ is
related to ξ by a dispersion
relation. When the value of τ is fixed below the resonance frequencies, the direction ξ must belong to cones:
By contrast, when τ is fixed above the cutoff frequencies, the direction ξ must belong to two nested spheres
which collapse when τ becomes large.
Asymptotically, we recover spherical waves:
