Abstract

Herein is presented a refinement of the theory published by Finn et al. (1999) for the mθ = 1 diocotron instability. A rigorous definition of the plasma length is introduced and the expression for the velocity field is improved, inasmuch as the effect of the finite size of the plasma column is included. The effect of the perturbation of the plasma length is considered rigorously by using a Green-function approach. A parametric study of the instability for a hollow profile is shown.
