Research notes, papers, reprints, correspondence, lectures, and
class materials from his teaching career and research while at Stanford University, with
some materials from the 1940s and 1950s relevant to his work on magnetrons. Subjects
include plasma physics, fourier transformations, Cray computers, and poisson solvers.
Papers also include films of computer simulations, tetrahedron models, and one file of
Oscar Buneman, prominent scientist in the fields of plasma electrodynamics, fundamental
electromagetic theory, and numerical anaylsis, was Professor of Electrical Engineering
at Stanford University from 1960 until he reached emeritus status in 1984. While at
Stanford he worked on laboratory applications of plasma phys ics to cross-field
microwave devices , stability analysis, and other phenomena. He also developed, with a
series of collaborators, a three-dimensional electromagnetic particle simulation code
(TRISTAN) for Cray supercomputers.
