Abstract:

A particle simulation study demonstrates that an initial-value analysis is essential in understanding the early-time growth of diocotron modes. It is also demonstrated that the equilibrium properties of a rigid rotor including rotation on both the high and the low frequency branches are well described by particle simulation.
