By Vadim N. Tsytovich (auth.)

For a while now there was an curiosity within the nop. ­ linear interplay of electromagnetic waves in plasma [1,2]. yet merely within the previous few years has the idea of nonlinear wave inter­ motion results gone through such energetic improvement as to lead to the formula of transparent actual suggestions concerning the mech­ anisms of interplay. This improvement has been engendered via makes an attempt to unravel a few of the plasma-physical difficulties accom­ panying the super development of experimental learn [3]. the significance of nonlinear results in smooth plasma physics is dis­ stubborn intimately in Chap. I. At this element we in basic terms tension the truth that at the present time the research of nonlinear results is a pragmatic ne­ cessity in any test concerning plasma instabilities. we must always additionally indicate that plasma instabilities can assert them­ selves generally in solids (solid country plasma) and play an im­ portant half within the research of cosmic plasma. accordingly, the issues of nonlinear wave interplay in plasma are of shock to these operating in generally diversified parts of physics. but it truly is tough to assimilate the result of investigations on nonlinear results, because of the advanced method within which the result of orig­ inal examine are awarded. within the current booklet the writer hopes in a few degree to fill the necessity for a textual content at the physics of non­ linear results that's obtainable to a reasonably common audience.

NONLINEAR EQUATION FOR THE FIELD IN A PLASMA We begin our discussion with the simplest case of a cold plasma in order to illustrate certain important characteristics of wave interaction in plasma as an example of elementary nonlinear interaction. " A plasma can be called cold when the thermal motion of the particles is negligibly small.

12). The assumption is that the fields described by the nonlinear equations can be approxim ately represented in the form The amplitudes E~ (r,t) and E~ (r, t)are slowly varying functions of rand t, for which only the first derivatives with respect to r and t need be included. This method of solving the nonlinear equations has been used by Van der Pol [1] and in nonlinear optics by Bloembergen [2], and it has been mathematically justified by Bogolyubov [3]. It is reasonable that the derivatives of the amplitudes need to be included only in the left-hand, linear, side of Eqs.
