Abstract : Descriptive equations have been derived for the three-dimensional electromagnetic field of the rail type plasma accelerator, including parallel and nonparallel rail elements. Special cases treated include: (1) finite length parallel rails, three-dimensional field (2) finite length parallel rails, two-dimensional field in the plane of the rails; (3) finite length parallel rails, two-dimensional field in the plane midway between the rails and normal to the plane of the rails; (4) finite length nonparallel rails, threedimensional field; (5) finite length nonparallel rails, two-dimensional field in the plane of the rails; (6) finite length nonparallel rails, twodimensional field in the plane midway between the rails and normal to the plane of the rails. The assumptions of line currents and a filamentary discharge are made. (Author)
