The technique of numerical plasma simulation is here used to study the behavior of the electrostatic-inertial confinement device. Particle type simulation models calculate the time evolution of the plasma contained within a spherical chamber into which high energy ions are radially injected. Two types of steady state configurations were found to exist, one of which includes a virtual anode. Neither allows a particle density enhancement over that due to geometrical focussing. Author
