We consider a one-dimensional infinite chain of coupled charged harmonic oscillators in a magnetic field with a small stochastic perturbation of order ϵ. We prove that for a space–time scale of order ϵ- 1 the density of energy distribution (Wigner distribution) evolves according to a linear phonon Boltzmann equation. We also prove that an appropriately scaled limit of solutions of the linear phonon Boltzmann equation is a solution of the fractional diffusion equation with exponent 5 / 6.
