Summary Deals with the physics of cosmic ray diffusion theory, focusing on the physics of nonlinear transport of cosmic rays through turbulent interplanetary or interstellar plasma. This title discusses fundamental processes such as cosmic ray propagation and acceleration in the solar system or in interstellar space and the properties of such plasmas
