Abstract : A method is proposed for treating linear longitudinal perturbations in one-dimensional collisionless plasma diodes with a uniform plasma region and thin electrode sheaths. The method is comprehensive in that it allows for very general equilibrium, initial, boundary, and external-circuit conditions.
