Abstract

The nonlinear diocotron mode, discussed by Fine, Driscoll, and Malmberg [Phys. Rev. Lett. 63, 2232 (1989)] is characterized by two equations, one describing the frequency of orbiting, the other giving the quadrupole moment, as functions of size and offset. A new analysis, based on the method of moments, which yields equations more general in their content, is presented here. For example, the new equations describe columns whose shapes are not elliptical and whose densities are not constant.
