Abstract : The motions of thin and thick low density (q = omega subscript p 2/omega subscript c 2 much smaller than 1) crossed-field electron beams have been studied on the computer. Theoretical indications that such beams can be stable or unstable depending on the geometrical and electrical arrangements are supported, and the large amplitude behavior of a typical unstable configuration is found. In particular, thick, re-entrant beams can be quite stable against perturbations of the diocotron type. (Author)
