Abstract We present one- and three-dimensional calculations of the motion of relativistic electrons under the influence of an intense, linearly polarized laser and a static magnetic field, where strong acceleration of electrons is obtained. The electron dynamics in the case of a focused laser beam are compared to that of a pure plane wave. The focused laser beam tends to eject the electron due to the strong transverse ponderomotive force. It is shown that by depressing the laser beam{close_quote}s central intensity the electron will remain within the focus. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
