Abstract : Plan r el c ron oscillatio i a cold sh rply bou e bu oth r i u iform pl sma is studi by the m t o of D A O P HYS. R EV. !!:*, !(%(). Multistreaming sets in very quickly and independently of amplitude, for those oscillations in hich el ctro s pass outside the ion cloud, w ich indicates that plas r o nc fr u ci s predicted by similar models are illusory. uch oscillations re llo d only if there is a harmonic oscillator pote tial just outside the ion cloud, and the single electron oscillator frequency is qual to the plasma frequency.
