We provide methods of computing multivalued solutions to the Euler-Poisson system and test them in the context of a klystron amplifier. An Eulerian formulation capable of computing multivalued solutions is derived from a kinetic description of the Euler-Poisson system and a moment closure. The system of the moment equations may be closed due to the special structure of the solution in phase space. The Eulerian moment equations are computed for a velocity modulated electron beam, which has been shown by prior Lagrangian theories to break in a finite time and form multivalued solutions. The results of the Eulerian moment equations are compared to direct computation of the kinetic equations and a Lagrangian method also developed in the paper. We use the Lagrangian formulation for the explicit computation of wave breaking time and location for typical velocity modulation boundary conditions.
