General Theory of the Arc Plasma
In the preceding pages, we have put considerable emphasis on the fact that the theory of the uniform, cylindrical, indefinite positive column benefits from a number of lucky circumstances which considerably simplify the equations. Such circumstances exist both for the high-pressure arc and for the low-pressure one. In this respect the two theories are closely linked together despite their basic differences.
