Abstract:

The concept of two purely longitudinal space-charge waves, which propagate on electron beams in an infinitely high magnetic field, is extended to the case of finite magnetic fields. The existence of four electromechanical waves with both longitudinal and transverse velocity components is shown. An orthogonal combination of these waves is found by simply inverting a 4x4 matrix without requiring the solution of the fourth-order characteristic equation. Author
