The relativistic motion of test particles in stochastic magnetic fields is investigated. Guiding-centre motion is analysed in relativistic invariant form for toroidal geometry. Including stochastic magnetic field components, a symmetric Hamiltonian mapping technique, leading to a 4-dimensional iteration procedure, is developed. In general, an external electric field and a time-dependence of the magnetic field perturbations are allowed for. Break-up of drift surfaces is demonstrated via Poincar… CONTINUE READING
