    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Two different phase-space models of solitary electron holes are investigated and compared with results from computer simulations of an actual laboratory experiment, carried out in a strongly magnetized, cylindrical plasma column. In the two models, the velocity distribution of the electrons is described by a single waterbag distribution and a modified Maxwellian distribution, respectively. A comparison with the results obtained by a BGK scheme rather than the phase-space model method is also included.
