Transport of field lines is studied for a realistic model of magnetic field configuration in a Reversed Field Pinch. It is shown that transport is anomalous, i.e., it cannot be described within the standard diffusive paradigm. To fit numerical results we present a transport model based upon the Continuous Time Random Walk formalism. Fairly good quantitative agreement appears for exponential memory functions. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
