Title Geometrical description of non-linear electrostatic oscillations in relativistic thermal plasmas
Contributors
Abstract We develop a method for investigating the relationship between the shape of a 1-particle distribution and non-linear electrostatic oscillations in a collisionless plasma, incorporating transverse thermal motion. A general expression is found for the maximum sustainable electric field, and is evaluated for a particular highly anisotropic distribution.
