Abstract : The study of enhanced diffusion in a radio-frequency magneto-plasma has been completed. Several candidates for the experimentally observed instability have been suggested. Theoretical work on the problems associated with feedback stabilization through generalized boundary conditions has been focused on two problems: (1) the effect of the sheath, and (2) the question of whether active elements are needed in the stabilizing network.
