Generalization of Connor and Hastie's ripple-trapping coefficient, G(. cap alpha. ) [report]

In their calculation of transport due to ripple trapping, Connor and Hastie employ a factor G(a) to take into account the poloidal variation of the depth and snape of the local magnetic wells. They assume, however, that the toroidal field ripple strength, 6, is independent of poloidal angle. In this letter, we generalize G to treat any arbitrary pololda'l variation of 6, and also high beta and noncircular plasma configurations.
