Abstract:

Results of numerical calculations on the behavior of the low frequency density-gradient-driven drift instability in the collision dominated regime are presented. Real and imaginary parts of the instability frequency are given as a function of the plasma parameters essential for this instability. The calculations are based on a dispersion relation derived from fluid equations applicable to the plasma slab geometry. Author
