Magnetic line trapping and effective transport in stochastic magnetic fields
The transport of collisional particles in stochastic magnetic fields is studied using the decorrelation trajectory method. The nonlinear effect of magnetic line trapping is considered together with particle collisions. The running diffusion coefficient is determined for arbitrary values of the statistical parameters of the stochastic magnetic field and of the collisional velocity. The effect of the magnetic line trapping is determined. New anomalous diffusion regimes are found.
