Abstract
A relativistic charged particle moving in a uniform magnetic field and kicked by an electric field
is considered. Under the assumption of small magnetic field, an iterative map is developed.
We consider both the case in which no radiation is assumed and the radiative case, using the
Lorentz-Dirac equation to describe the motion. Comparison between the non-radiative case
and the radiative case shows that in both cases, one can observe a stochastic web structure for
