A phenomenological study of cosmic ray propagation. A corrected diffusion model.
Abstract
We show that the mathematical solution of the transfer equation given by Le Guet and Pacheco (1973) for the propagation of cosmic nuclei is incorrect. We give the correction and find that in certain cases the diffusion coefficient can differ by about an order of magnitude from that obtained previously.
