The Mott-Smith (1951) interpolation method gives a non-Maxwellian velocity distribution for the particles in a shock front. The dispersion equation corresponding to the non-Maxwellian distribution is derived by Vlasov's (1945) formula. The roots of the dispersion equation indicate frequency bandwidths of space charge wave amplification that decrease with the shock strength. It is suggested, in agreement with Denisse and Rocard (1951), that the storm bursts of narrow bandwidth originating in… Expand

Growth of electron space-charge and radio waves in moving ion streams
Abstract A criticism is given of a recent paper by Piddington with the same title. It is shown that his belief that the growing waves in a two-stream electron wave tube are really evanescent isExpand
On the mechanisms of sporadic solar radio emission
The mechanism that generates sporadic (nonthermal) solar radio emission, which is of great interest to radio astronomy and solar physics, is rather obscure. Recently the authors considered thisExpand
