Plasma heating due to non-linear interaction in two special four-plasma-wave systems
Two slightly different systems of differential equations for wave-packet-averaged electric-field amplitudes of four interacting waves in a plasma are solved, the solution of the “undamped” system being used as the initial trial function of the “damped” system. The rates of energy transfer from the waves to the plasma are calculated in either case.
