Nonlinear dynamics of cold magnetized nonrelativistic plasma in the presence of electronion collisions
Abstract
A numerical study is presented of the nonlinear dynamics of a magnetized, cold, nonrelativistic plasma, in the presence of electronion collisions. The ions are considered to be immobile while the electrons move with nonrelativistic velocities. The primary interest is to study the effects of the collision parameter, external magnetic field strength, and the initial electromagnetic polarization on the evolution of the plasma system.

Direct computation of the growth rate for the instability of a warm relativistic electron beam in a cold magnetized plasma
The fully kinetic, fully electromagnetic dispersion equation for a warm relativistic electron beam in a cold magnetized plasma is numerically solved with no simplifying assumptions made. For magnetic fields of various strengths, the growth rate maps for the beamplasma instability are plotted and dominant modes are identified. The exact solution is compared with available approximate solutions. The latter are shown to misinterpret the effect of the magnetic field on the instability of oblique waves. 
Weakly relativistic solitons in a magnetized ionbeam plasma in presence of electron inertia
The relativistic compressive solitons of fast ionacoustic mode are established in this magnetized plasma for the introduction of relativistic beam when Q{sup '}(=m{sub b}/m{sub i})>1 or <1 subject to v{sub s{xi}0}v{sub b{xi}0}=U{sub d} sin {theta} (v{sub s{xi}0}=ion initial streaming, v{sub b{xi}0}=beam initial streaming, and U{sub d} is the beam drift perpendicular to the direction of magnetic field). The lighter concentration of beam ions (Q{sup '}<1) in the plasma admits slower variation in amplitudes after some critical N{sub b} (=beam density) for all {sigma}{sub {nu}}(cos {theta}). Further, it is shown that under smaller relativistic effect (v{sub b{xi}0}/c=0.10 and v{sub s{xi}0}/c=0.10) formore » 
Influence of electron collisions on the resonance cone phenomenon in a cold magnetized plasma
We present a theoretical study of the potential produced by an antenna immersed in a cold magnetized plasma. This phenomenon is described in the literature as the {open_quote}{open_quote}resonance cone{close_quote}{close_quote} phenomenon. In this work, we take into account electron collisions with other particles (neutral or charged). We show that the domain{emdash}in terms of frequencies{emdash}where the resonance cone exists is drastically reduced for a collisional plasma. Furthermore, the resonance cone peak is shifted by collisions, so that the usual formula used to compute the electronic density is not quite exact. All the calculations are done with a finite magnetic field. {copyright} {italmore » 
Nonlinear theory for excitation of electromagnetic waves in a plasma by a magnetized relativistic electron beam
The nonlinear interaction of a magnetized, lowdensity relativistic electron beam with an electromagnetic wave in a plasma is analyzed. The beam magnetization ensures that the motion of the beam electrons is onedimensional and determines the nature of the excitation of electromagnetic waves by virtue of the orientation of the beam with respect to the wave propagation direction. The maximum amplitude of the steadystate nonlinear wave is evaluated, and the efficiency at which the beam energy is converted into electromagnetic energy is found.
