Abstract

The diffusion tensor in an isolated electron or light ion swarm subject only to elastic collisions with molecules has been formulated from the multiterm expansion of the Boltzmann equation in the hydrodynamic description. Derived diffusion coefficients for the transverse and longitudinal directions include the additional terms representative of the curvature effect under the action of an electric field besides the usual two-term expressions. Discussion is, particularly, focused on the relation between the transverse diffusion coefficient D//T and its conventional expression D//V.
