NONLINEAR-WAVE CONVERSION IN ELECTRON-POSITRON PLASMAS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract Wave conversion mechanisms causing large-frequency shifts are considered for an electron-positron plasma in a strong magnetic field. In particular, we discuss the effects of the nonlinear ńĆerenkov as well as the cyclotron resonances in order to associate pulsar radio-emissions with our present model for nonlinear conversion of high-frequency radiation into the low-frequency region.
