Gyrokinetics is a branch of plasma physics derived from kinetics and electromagnetism used to describe the low-frequency phenomena in a plasma. The trajectory of charged particles in a magnetic field is a helix that winds around the field line. This trajectory can be decomposed into a relatively slow motion of the guiding center along the field line and a fast circular motion called cyclotronic motion. For most of the plasma physics problems, this later motion is irrelevant. Gyrokinetics yields a way of describing the evolution of the particles without taking into account the circular motion, thus discarding the useless information of the cyclotronic angle.
