We consider nonthermal emission from clusters of galaxies produced by particle acceleration by resonant scattering of Alfvén waves driven by fluid turbulence through the Lighthill mechanism in the intracluster medium. We assume that the turbulence is driven by cluster mergers. We find that the resonant Alfvén waves can accelerate electrons up to γ 10^5 through resonant scattering. We also find that the turbulent resonant acceleration can give enough energy to electrons to produce the observeddoi:10.1086/345599 fatcat:4q5tqqbo7zdyxc6ycg5hstvoy4
