Abstract

The StxF6;rmer's study is extended to examine the motion of a charged particle in a spherically confined magnetosphere. It is shown that the x2018;allowedx2019; region computed on this basis for proton energies ranging from 10 to 710 MeV is in a close agreement with the radial distribution and latitude dependence of the inner zone. A similar study is made also for electrons in the energy range 10x2013;900 keV.
