Abstract:

The nonlinear interaction phenomenon involving a beamplasma-electromagnetic wave combination is investigated using a Lagrangian method to calculate particle trajectories and energy conversion. Although collision effects are neglected finite temperature streams are treated by assigning appropriate particle distribution functions in velocity-phase space. Numerical calculations are presented for multiple stream and beam-plasma configurations with and without propagating slow electromagnetic waves. Author
