Determining the fate of waves in hot magnetized plasmas in magnetic confinement fusion machines close to arbitrary cyclotron harmonics retaining finite Larmor radius effects requires solving the relevant integro-differential wave equation for waves of arbitrary wavelength. Anticipating exploitation in as realistic geometry as possible this requires massive computer resources. Work is ongoing to attempt reducing the required CPU memory and time. As Morlet wavelets are localised in x-space as well as k-space, they potentially offer a means to solve the relevant wave equation at reduced CPU requirement cost. Encouraging first results are obtained.
