A new drift-kinetic theory of the ion response to magnetic islands in tokamak plasmas is presented. Small islands are considered, with widths w much smaller than the plasma radius r, but comparable to the trapped ion orbit width ρ_bi. An expansion in w/r reduces the system dimensions from five down to four. In the absence of an electrostatic poten…
