Abstract:

Solutions of the equation describing proton acceleration in the electric field of the Earths geomagnetic tail often require lengthy numerical calculations and parametric exploration can be difficult. Here, considerations are presented of a scaling nature and shown that these considerations may be used to extend, correlate, organize, and verify groups of solutions with regard to parametric variation. Keywords Plasma sheet Particle acceleration.
