|Title||COLLISIONAL DRIFT WAVES OF A WEAKLY MAGNETIZED PLASMA|
The two-fluid equations are used to derive a model of collisional drift waves for cylindrical magnetized plasmas. Both the radial electron temperature variation and the sheared BE о о× rotation in the plasmas have been taken into account. It is found that the presence of the BE о о× rotation leads to an important modification of the theory of drift waves derived by Sayasov Yu. S. and Aebischer HA (1988). The theory is applied to an experimental data of helium plasma using Runge-Kutta integration method. Our calculation shows that the temperature variation and the BE о о× rotation are important in the predictions of drift wave frequency and radial position of the maximum wave amplitude.
