A nonlinear model of particle spectra and nonadiabatic magnetic field amplification in supernova shells is presented. The effect super-diffusive particle propagation in the vicinity of a shock wave has on the spectra of accelerated particles and magnetic field fluctuations is studied in a Monte Carlo simulation.
