Ergodic model for the dynamics of a pure electron plasma

Abstract

In a Penning trap in which Larmor, bouncing and dio- cotron frequencies are of the same order of magnitude, the trajectory of single electrons is intractable analytically. However, perturbations to the ideal electrostatic potential lead to a sort of ergodic density for the electrons. Accord- ing to this hypothesis, a model for the dynamics of the electron plasma is presented, in which the electron-neutral collisions are taken into account by using a Monte Carlo approach.
