Info

- Electron and proton thermal speeds are calculated as vth,s = (kBTe/ms)1/2.
- Electron gyrofrequency does not take into account the sign of the electric charge.
- The Larmor radius is calculated using the thermal speed of the charge species, i.e. rL,s = vth,s / Ωs.
- λD,p = λD,e as the Debye length only depends on the ratio (T/n)s which has been taken the same for electrons and protons.
