The research covers hollow cathode discharge HCD mechanisms and instabilities. Positive column theories of steady state magnetized discharges are extended to finite cylinder geometries by separation of variables. Low frequency instabilities in HCDs are identified as centrifugal flute modes driven by non-uniform EBr rotation and stabilized by infinite Larmor radius effects. Author
