This thesis presents some general equations describing the particle density distributions within a plasma. Solutions to these equations are discussed for various geometries, with particular emphasis given to the effects of diffusion losses at probes of dimensions comparable to or greater than the mean free path and to magnetic field end effects. For many of the geometries discussed, including one probe geometry, the effects of a superimposed magnetic field is discussed.
