One of the main applications in plasma physics concerns the energy production through thermo-nuclear fusion. The controlled fusion requires the confinement of the plasma into a bounded domain and for this, we appeal to the magnetic confinement. Several models exist for describing the evolution of strongly magnetized plasmas. The subject matter of this paper is to provide a rigorous derivation of the guiding-center approximation in the general three dimensional setting, under the action of large stationary inhomogeneous magnetic fields.
