Variations in magnetic or electrostatic confinement fields give rise to trapping separatrices, and standard neoclassical transport theory analyzes effects from collision-induced separatrix crossings. Experiments and theory have now characterized novel transport effects arising from “chaotic“ separatrix crossings, which occur due to equilibrium plasma rotation across -ruffled separatrices, and/or due to wave-induced separatrix fluctuations.
