A relativistic bounce-averaged quasilinear diffusion equation is derived to describe stochastic particle transport associated with low-frequency electromagnetic fluctuations in a nonuniform magnetized plasma. Expressions for the relativistic quasilinear diffusion coefficients are calculated explicitly for magnetically-trapped particle distributions in axisymmetric magnetic geometry in terms of drift-bounce resonant contributions associated with low-frequency fluctuations which conserve the… CONTINUE READING
