Abstract: A theoretical description of twisted (vortex) electrons interacting with electric and magnetic fields is presented, based on Lorentz transformations. The general dynamical equations of motion of a twisted electron with an intrinsic orbital angular momentum in an external field are derived. Methods for the extraction of an electron vortex beam with a given orbital polarization and for the manipulation of such a beam are developed.
