Abstract

Hutchinson gives a nice analysis of the (in)validity of Hudis and Lidsky’s unmagnetized Mach probe theory.(1) We agree with his main assertions, which are that (1) a one-dimensional model is incapable of properly describing unmagnetized ion collection by a Mach probe and (2) any experimental agreement with theories based on Hudis and Lidsky should not be interpreted as physical validation of their model.
