A digital computer program is being used to solve the electron gun problem to a certain degree of approximation. Certain phenomena have been observed in the numerical solution such as the choice of the perveance density influencing the convergence and final results. These phenomena are not completely understood however, experience has provided guidelines to effective use of the program. The program was used to evaluate two electron guns of current interest to the Sozotron project, namely, the Litton L-3250 and L-232 guns. It was found that both guns appear to be suitable for this application. Author
