An assumed discharge geometry.
Illustration of the short-circuit effect. Magnetic tube (1) has higher density than tube (2). The sheath thickness has been greatly exaggerated. (a) During short-circuiting and (b) during approach to equilibrium.
Solutions of Eq. (17) for three different values of k.
Rescaled solution of Eq. (17) for 15 mTorr of argon and KT e = 3 eV.
