The report describes the work that has been carried out on the following topics-a The application of a Monte Carlo simulation technique to additional problems in rarefied gas dynamics. In particular, an unfinished study of the breakdown of continum flow in steady expansions. b The numerical simulation of the motion of a test particle in an ionized gas. c An exact analytical solution for the compression of a highly rarefied plasma between converging magnetic mirrors. d The preliminary study of the theoretical performance of a multi-stage hypervelocity launcher.
