Fluctuations and Nonlinear Wave Processes in a Plasma

  • A. G. Sitenko
Part of the Nobel Symposium Committee (1976) book series (NOFS, volume 36)


Electromagnetic fluctuations in a nonequilibrium plasma are investigated taking into account nonlinear wave interactions. The spectral distribution of stationary field fluctuations is determined and the possibility of induced fluctuation enhancement by external fields is shown. The scattering and transformation of waves and radiation in nonequilibrium plasmas are studied on the basis of a generalized kinetic equation allowing for interaction between waves and fluctuation fields in plasmas.
