A method is given for the calculation of the change in the amplitudes and phases of harmonics of all orders, as the wave progresses, for any specified dependence of the dielectric constant on the magnitude of the electric field and for any initial wave form. The calculations are valid provided the distance of travel is sufficiently small that shocks are not formed. The formulae for the amplitudes and phases of the various harmonics take a particularly simple form when the initial wave-form is sinusoidal and the non-linearity of the dielectric is not too great.
