Since the dominant nonlinear process in the weak Langmuir turbulence theory results in wave energy flux towards the long wave length region of phase space where there is no energy sin we are faced with the problem of plasmon condensate formation [1]. For the case when the Langmuir turbulence is pumped by strong electromagnetic waves there were attempts to explain the Langmuir turbulence spectrum [2] involving into consideration the energy transfer due to the oscillating two stream instability. But the coupling approach used in these considerations really fails in the case of so strong parametric interaction.
