Abstract

Stationary solutions of Vlasov-Maxwell equations are obtained by exploiting the invariants of single particle motion leading to linear or nonlinear functional relations between current and vector potential. For a specific combination of invariants, it is shown that Vlasov-Maxwell equilibria have an associated Hamiltonian that exhibits chaos.
