Abstract:

The coupling of 3 fixed phase waves in a cold beam-plasma system is discussed for all cases that result from locating the waves on the positive and negative energy branch. Explicit expressions are given for the spatial variation of the wave amplitudes including the influence of wave number mismatch and spatial growth rates. The coupling constants are computed for the decay and the explosive mode for representative beam and plasma parameters. Author
