Quasistatic evolution of a dissipative plasma column in vacuum: errata and addenda

C. Lo Surdo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We provide a revised, and substantially enriched, version of an old study of ours, dealing with the theory of the slow evolution of a strictly dissipative, cylindrical plasma column in vacuum [J. Plasma Phys. 43, 217-237 (1990)]. After correcting a technical mistake made in our previous formulation of the model of the physical system under consideration, we develop a fully amended version of the associated theory, paying special attention to the problem's well-posedness. A number of comments, generalizations and further details have also been added.
