ABSTRACT
Collisional momentum and energy transport in bi-Maxwellian plasmas with a drift velocity along the ambient magnetic field are calculated from both the Fokker–Planck and Boltzmann integral approximations. The transport coefficients obtained from the two approaches are identical to the leading order (proportional to the Coulomb logarithm) and are presented here in a closed form involving generalized double hypergeometric functions.
