Abstract:

The goal of the conducted research was to find improved mathematical models for the physical processes that occur in radio frequency discharges. Existing models of the plasma sheath have been studied and new ones have been developed for the bounded plasma problem. Numerical algorithms and analytical formulas have been found for solving the equations governing these models, and physical characteristics of the sheath have been obtained.
