The collisional transport of relativistic electron beams in dense, magnetized, high-Z plasmas is characterized by a perturbation solution of the relativistic Boltzmann equation with a Fokker-Plank collision term in the limit of small beam-electron mean-free-path or gyroradius. The general formulation allows for arbitrary magnetic-field, electric-field, and plasma geometries. Analytic solutions in 1-D yield energy-deposition profiles for a magnetized plasma slab. Author
