Plasma waves which can propagate in a hot magnetized plasma near harmonics of the ion cyclotron frequency Omega sub ci were studied numerically in the electrostatic approximation. The effects of collisionless damping processes and finite ion Larmor radius were included. The results obtained were compared first to those obtained from cammon approximate equations, to determine when the approximate results are adequate to describe the waves, and then to the experimental results which have been obtained at several laboratories.
