    Abstract

    The dispersion relation for low‐frequency electrostatic waves was analyzed numerically to find the region of instability for an ion beam plasma versus beam velocity vb, and versus electron to ion temperature ratio. For Vb≳1.6 a the marginal unstable mode has a perpendicular wavenumber k⊥≠0.
