Abstract : This final technical report describes the research results of theoretical and computational analyses of wave particle interaction in plasma turbulence. (1) We developed the extended resonance broadening theory of plasma turbulence in which anomalous particle diffusion in strong plasma turbulence was revealed. (2) As a new approach to plasma turbulence theory, wave particle interaction was studied in a framework of quantum electrodynamics which allows the inclusion of self fields created by energetic plasma electrons. (3) A MAGIC simulation code was used to study plasma turbulence and its interaction with photons. (4) A MAGIC code was also used to study plasma interaction with microwaves in a Vircator high power microwave device. (5) Collective effects in plasmas were studied in the presence of dusts in a plasma.
