    • Abstract


      The problem of a free electron periodically kicked by a magnetic field has been solved. The system shows a transition from quantum recurrence to instability at ωT=2 where ω is the Larmor frequency andT is the period of the kick. The existence of recurrent behaviour amounts to the confinement of the electron by magnetic kicking. Since the theory holds for all types of charged particles, it has many practical applications.
