    The dynamics of a longitudinally cold, charged-particle beam can be simulated by dividing the beam into slices and calculating the motion of the slice boundaries due to the longitudinal electric field generated by the beam. On each time step, the beam charge is deposited onto an (r, z) grid, and...

    This letter reports an experimental investigation of an atmospheric glow discharge in both the high-frequency (HF) band of 3–30 MHz and the very high frequency band of 30–300 MHz. At constant input power, increased frequency is found to change little the electron density and to...
