Title: Electron perpendicular viscosity in Braginskii's equations

The viscosity coefficient of the electron perpendicular stress tensor in Braginskii's theory is corrected by the addition of a term of the same order of magnitude, through the inclusion of a term beyond pitch angle scattering in the mass-ratio expansion of the electron-ion collision operator.
