Abstract

An analysis is made of the motion of a stream of electrons obeying Lorentz's equations of motion. It leads to a more general action principle than that of an earlier paper, containing two new field variables. The present theory allows vorticity in the electron stream, while still involving e and m only in the ratio e/m. A Hamiltonian formulation of the equations is deduced.
