On the stationary state of a plasma in magnetostatic and potential fields II

  • 14 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The density distribution on the lines of force of the magnetostatic field is established under certain simplifying conditions for a plasma bounded by a combination of a magnetostatic and a potential field. The distribution functions of the particles, too, are determined for some of the cases being examined. It is found that certain non-linear effects given by the action of the averaged high-frequency forces in the plasma can occur in experiments concerning the magnetoacoustic resonance of the plasma column.
