Abstract:

In general, it can be said that in a fully ionized gaseous plasma the conductivity is independent of the density and in a solid non-ferromagnet material the permeability is essentially that of vacuum. As for the dielectric constant, it disappears from the equations once it is recognized that wave propagation phenomena do not play a significant role. In addition, the conductor is assumed to be incompressible and ideally cooled so that the pulse generation process is isothermal. The effects arising from mechanical and thermal stresses are therefore considered as small perturbations to be introduced once the body forces and the Joule losses in the conductor have been evaluated.
