Progress on a fairly large number of projects is described in the semiannual report. With one exception, these projects can be grouped into four categories plasma, electromagnetics, fluid dynamics and ablation studies. The general theme of nearly all projects in the first three groups is the concern with the electromagnetic properties of ionized gases andor plasmas, such as the properties of antennas, excitation of waves in plasmas, propagation through plasmas, measurement of electron densities of shock waves, precursor studies of shocks, instabilities in plasmas, properties of laboratory plasmas. One contribution is concerned with the basic kinetic theory of ionized media. A few others are concerned with gas flow problems. The work on ablation was just incorporated in the program, and one contribution deals with this subject. Author
