Canonical and magnetic coordinates applied to relativistic guiding centre drifts
The formulation of the guiding centre drift orbits is extended to relativistic particles in canonical coordinates with arbitrary time dependent electric and magnetic fields. The transformation to these coordinates from general flux coordinates is cumbersome for practical applications. This transformation is straightforward for Boozer magnetic coordinates which are canonical if the perturbed magnetic field is constrained.
