Anomalous inward particle convection in tokamaks
Radially inward particle convection is shown to be a consequence of the conservation of canonical angular momentum in an axisymmetric geometry with a prescribed radial electric field distribution. Analytic expressions as well as quantitative estimates of the particle pinch profile are obtained.
