Higherorder corrections to particle diffusion in strongly magnetized twocomponent plasmas
Abstract
The nodal expansion of equilibrium properties of a twocomponent classical plasma in 2+∊ dimensions (0<=∊<=1) is used to investigate higherorder corrections with respect to the plasma parameter of the transversediffusion coefficient relative to an arbitrarily strong and constant magnetic field. Only the shortrange compact nodal graphs decaying faster than Debye contribute to the third and higher nonvanishing orders. The usual fluidlimit (k>0) procedure delivering the firstorder Bohm result is shown to be selfconsistent for any dimension 2<=ν<=3.
