Information about the momentum distribution of electrons in a plasma is often of great importance, for example, when superthermal electrons are created by noninductive means. For such predominantly one-dimensional distribution functions, an analytic inversion has been found that yields the velocity distribution of superthermal electrons given their bremsstrahlung radiation.
