Nonlinear interaction of spherical waves in a homogeneous isotropic plasma

  • J. C. Cerisier (a1)

The nonlinear interaction of two HF electromagnetic spherical waves is studied in a homogeneous isotropic plasma. Due to space variations in the k vectors of the mother waves, the interaction is localized. The structure and the amplitude of the generated Langmuir wave are calculated and a possible experiment is discussed.
