|Abstract||The time evolution of the distribution function of newborn ions in the solar wind is investigated within the context of a quasilinear theory in which the level of intrinsic turbulence is assumed to be moderate and known. The initial distribution is taken to be a ring beam, which is approximated by delta functions in pitch angle and velocity, and it is assumed that the ions are created at a constant rate with a similar distribution. The long-time asymptotic form of the distribution is obtained. This distribution is a mixture of ions created recently and ions generated throughout the entire process. The results obtained in the present analysis are found to be in good agreement with recent satellite observations. The time asymptotic distribution is also found to be unstable to low-frequency hydromagnetic waves propagating parallel to the ambient magnetic field.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
