Abstract:The non-diffusive transport of an anisotropic pulse of cosmic ray charged particles in an inhomogeneous medium with a regular magnetic field is considered. Both the angle particle distribution in a source and the angle dependence of a detector response as well as the time dependent particle injection from the source into the medium are comprised. The temporal dependences of the particle number and of the detected particle intensity are demonstrated at various distances from the source. It is shown that the temporal profiles are strongly dependent on the anisotropy value and they have dissimilar behaviour for different asymptotic direction of detector.
