Abstract

The Comment is devoted to some mathematical inaccuracies made by the authors of the paper "Information hidden in the velocity distribution of ions and the exact kinetic Bohm criterion", PSST, 2011". In the Comment we show that the diapason of plasma parameters for the validity of the theoretical results obtained by the authors was defined incorrectly; we made more accurate definition of this diapason. As a result we show that it is impossible to confirm or refute the feasibility of the Bohm kinetic criterion on the base of the data of the cited paper.
