Perpendicular Diffusion of Energetic Particles: A Complete Analytical Theory

  title={Perpendicular Diffusion of Energetic Particles: A Complete Analytical Theory},
  author={Andreas Shalchi},
Over the past two decades scientists have achieved a significant improvement of our understanding of the transport of energetic particles across a mean magnetic field. Due to test-particle simulations as well as powerful non-linear analytical tools our understanding of this type of transport is almost complete. However, previously developed non-linear analytical theories do not always agree perfectly with simulations. Therefore, a correction factor a was incorporated into such theories with the… Expand
