Abstract

The linearized Vlasov-Maxwell equations, describing longitudinal plasma waves, are studied with the addition of a simple short-range collision term and for a given equilibrium distribution. The problem of stability, and of existence and location of isolated eigenvalues determining the asymptotic time behavior of the plasma following a small plane wave initial perturbation with given arbitrary wave number are investigated.
