The goal of the project is to develop a theory of Alfvén waves in kinetic approximation including energetic particles and geodesic effects on instability these waves in tokamak plasmas. Vlasov equation foe collisionless plasmas will be used as basic equation for this analysis. Final results are proposed to be used for development new diagnostics methods with Alfvén waves in the TCABR tokamak of IFUSP. (AU)
