Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The stabilizing effects of the addition of short-range collisions to a partially ionized plasma are investigated through a recently developed numerical Laplace transform inversion algorithm. The technique is demonstrated using a two-stream equilibrium distribution and double Maxwellian equilibrium distributions. The regions of plasma stability obtained in previous studies are verified.
