We present a technique to control chaos in Hamiltonian systems which are close to integrable. By adding a small and simple control term to the perturbation, the system becomes more regular than the original one. We apply this technique to a model that reproduces turbulent E × B drift and show numerically that the control is able to drastically reduce chaotic transport.

TLDR
This work uses a method of control for near-integrable Hamiltonians that consists of the addition of a small and simple control term that creates invariant tori in phase space that prevent chaos from spreading to large regions, making the controlled dynamics more regular. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that a relevant control of Hamiltonian chaos is possible through suitable small perturbations whose form can be explicitly computed, and suggests that some strategy to control turbulent transport in magnetized plasmas, in particular, tokamaks, is conceivable. Expand
