36 Scopus citations


This paper reviews selected topics in cosmic-ray transport in the heliosphere, as well as recent insights on the interaction of cosmic rays with shocks. Topics include: (a) recent observations suggesting very long inferred scattering mean-free paths of cosmic rays, (b) recent insights into the diffusion of cosmic rays normal to a magnetic field, (c) the physics of super-diffusion and sub-diffusion, and (e) the interaction of cosmic rays with shocks moving through large-scale irregular magnetic fields.
