Abstract : The low frequency electromagnetic conductivity of high temperature low density plasmas is examined starting from a linearized kinetic equation of the Balescu type. The conductivity is related in a well-known way to the properties of collective waves, and expressions are obtained for the phase velocity and damping of these waves. The results agree with experiment to just within experimental accuracy. (Author)
