Calculations are presented on the phenomenon of plasma–sheath resonance in an inhomogeneous plasma. In certain cases, this resonance coincides with a local resonance occurring in the plasma, the local plasma frequency being equal to the resonant frequency of the entire system. The theory does not describe the mechanism of absorption, but does predict the magnitude of the power involved. Some limitations of the theory are discussed.
