Title: Processes of diffusion in a limited ensemble of charged particles in a static magnetic field

Abstract

The dynamics of a limited ensemble of charged particles in a spatially uniform static magnetic field has been studied analytically and numerically. Calculations have been performed for particles with various masses and charges in a wide range of the parameters of the systems under study. It has been shown that the transverse diffusion coefficient in an ensemble of particles in the magnetic field for weakly nonideal systems is described by the Townsend formula. Analytical estimates have been proposed for the analysis of the effective diffusion radius of the ensemble of particles owing to their thermal motion. The proposed relations have been tested by the numerical simulation of the problem.
