Abstract : The scaling for the ignition of beam plasma discharge observed in many laboratory experiments is consistent with the requirement for triggering an absolute instability near the plasma frequency (omega sub e). The transition in the scaling with pressure can be attributed to transition from Bohm to classical diffusion losses. (Author)
