Abstract : A summary of earlier results partaining to the calculation of the Fokker-Planck coefficients in a plasma are given. The contribution due to electrostatic interaction is explicitly evaluated. Then the distribution of the stochastic magnetic field is considered. A technique is developed to calculate the distribution of the field due to particles revolving in the combined externally imposed and stochastic field. (Author)
