Simulation of Charged Particle Diffusion in MHD plasmas

Lehrstuhl für Astronomie, Universität Würzburg, Germany

Abstract. Magnetohydrodynamical simulations of turbulent plasmas have been performed to study the transport of energetic test particles. Several parameters of the underlying MHD simulation have been varied to gain insight into the main processes governing transport. Here also the distinct effects of wave-particle resonance and field line wandering shall be studied.
