Résumé :

In this talk, we report on our recent findings of the enhancement of the
magnetic reconnection rate caused by turbulent processes in a
Poynting-dominated plasma. We simulate an evolution of a current sheet
in driven turbulence using the relativistic resistive MHD approximation.
Our numerical results show that turbulence greatly enhances the
reconnection rate, and becomes independent of resistivity. We also
discuss some effects from plasma compressibility, and how they affect
the reconnection rate.
