Exposure to a blast wave has been proposed to cause mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), with symptoms including altered cognition, memory, and behavior. This idea, however, remains controversial, andâ€¦ (More)

Efficient techniques for computing axisymmetric non-neutral plasma equilibria are described. These equilibria may be obtained either by requiring global thermal equilibrium, by specifying theâ€¦ (More)

Modes and quasi-modes for mÏ1,2 are studied in a gyro-kinetic model for a pure-electron plasma. Only z-independent perturbations are considered. Numerical methods are used to solve the relevantâ€¦ (More)

Numerical investigations of a warm-fluid model with an isothermal equation of state for the perpendicular dynamics of an axisymmetric, magnetically confined pure electron plasma predict anâ€¦ (More)

Gyrokinetic equations are derived for applications to non-neutral plasmas in constant, straight magnetic fields wherein EÏ«B drift velocities are of the same order as thermal velocities. The ratio ofâ€¦ (More)

For realistic, cold equilibria of finite length representing a pure electron plasma confined in a cylindrical Malmbergâ€“Penning trap, the mode spectrum for Trivelpieceâ€“Gould, mÏ0, and for diocotron,â€¦ (More)

A complete solution is obtained for nonaxisymmetric resonant vibrations of a free cylinder or disk involving infinite sums. For axisymmetric longitudinal vibrations an alternative to previousâ€¦ (More)
