Abstract : A mathematical model is presented and a relatively simple solution is obtained which describes the basic characteristics of solar cosmic ray propagation. The model postulates that solar cosmic rays diffuse anisotropically in the interplanetary medium because of the irregular spiral interplanetary magnetic field.
