Adiabatic oscillations of the onedimensional SGEMP boundary layer
Abstract
Adiabatic oscillations of the onedimensional SGEMP (systemgenerated electromagnetic pulse) boundary layer about equilibrium are described in a fluid approximation. The solution for monoenergetic emission normal to the surface is found and compared with a computer solution. Solutions for photoelectron emission with a cosine distribution for a monoenergetic and a lineartimesexponential energy distribution are also found. It appears that these latter solutions are not physically meaningful. If physically meaningful modes of oscillation do exist for other emission configurations, they are probably stable.
