The existing theories for the propagation of intense electron beams at relativistic energies and the experimental results so far obtained are reviewed. A phenomenological description of beam propagation is given and an expression for the maximum current that a beam may possess is derived. This expression is somewhat different from the Alfven limit but reduces to this limit in the case of a fully neutralized beam. Author
