@article{Valvo2022NumericalSO, title={Numerical study of the transverse diffusion coefficient for a one component model of plasma.}, author={L. Sorriso Valvo and Andrea Carati}, journal={Chaos}, year={2022}, volume={32 3}, pages={ 033103 } }

In this paper, we discuss the results of some molecular dynamics simulations of a magnetized one component plasma, targeted to estimate the diffusion coefficient D⊥ in the plane orthogonal to the magnetic field lines. We find that there exists a threshold with respect to the magnetic field strength |B→|: for weak magnetic field, the diffusion coefficients scale as 1/|B→|2, while a slower decay appears at high field strength. The relation of this transition with the different mixing properties…

Numerically the relaxation to equilibrium is studied in a modified Bohr model, which is mathematically equivalent to a billiard with obstacles, immersed in a magnetic field that is adiabatically switched on, and it is shown that it is not guaranteed that equilibrium is attained within the typical time scales of microscopic dynamics.
