Abstract:

In order to prepare for planned work on plasma instabilities, a search was made of the literature. The report gives a survey on the material found. A short review is given of the various points of view under which the theoretical approach is possible. Interchange instabilities are then treated, which cover the largest field of phenomena, among them the so called negative V-systems and ballooning modes. The influence of finite resistivity and current-carrier mass is next considered. A unified approach to resistive and microinstabilities completes the survey.
