Abstract

We solve the linear electrostatic wave equation for an inhomogeneous bounded plasma in an inhomogeneous magnetic field using a hot model valid to all orders in Larmor radius. This leads us to solving a homogeneous second order integro-differential equation with two boundary conditions. Thus we are able to find wave solutions, for any given density and temperature profiles, having wavelengths even smaller than the Larmor radius.
