Abstract:

A complete quantum mechanical development of phenomena of nonlinear interactions of waves in a plasma is given. After a presentation of fundamental equations of a definitive nature there follows a treatment of 1 probabilities of processes of second order 2 probabilities of scattering processes 3 scattering cross sections 4 probabilities of disintegration processes and 5 a study of certain special cases including the interaction of transverse waves and the interaction of longitudinal Langmuir waves in a plasma.
