On the boundary layer in electron stream

  • M. Z. v. Krzywoblocki

Summary

Howard’s theory on the motion of an electron stream and his equation are applied by the author to a specific problem of the boundary layer of an electron stream. By that it is meant that the electron stream is subject to conditions identical to those in a stream of an ordinary fluid in the vicinity of a wall or a body. The final equations are associated with the forms known in the literature and, consequently, may be possibly solved by further approximative or numerical treatment.
