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 personal documents.
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.
