Abstract

Collisionless magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence is common in large scale astrophysical environments. The determination of the transport of charged particles both parallel and perpendicular in such a system is of considerable interest. Quasi-linear analysis or direct numerical simulation can be used to find the effects of the turbulent magnetic field on the transport of charged particles. A number of different magnetic turbulence models have been proposed in the last several decades. We present here the results of studying particle transport in synthesized, anisotropic turbulence and compare the results with those obtained using the standard isotropic turbulence model in a series of papers. In this paper we consider the magnetic field turbulence model with global anisotropy.
