A study of motion of  charged particles in the  field of an electromagnetic  or electrostatic  wave  propagating in plasma  in the presence of  a uniform stationary  background magnetic field is a  classical problem in plasma physics.  Under different relations between parameters  of this problem completely different dynamical phenomena take place.  In this talk I am planning to  describe   phenomena of  capture into resonance and scattering on resonance that occur  in the case of slow  high frequency waves  and a weak background magnetic field. Capture into resonance may lead to  unlimited particle acceleration along the front of the wave (so called surfatron acceleration).
