Title: Criterion for the sign of wave energy

Abstract

Criterion for the sign of wave energy are developed by using the symmetry properties of the plasma equilibrium and the fact that Vlasov dynamics is an incompressible flow in phase space, rather than the usual and more difficult procedure of calculating the value of the wave energy directly. Applications are made to the case of waves excited on a nonneutral plasma in a Malmberg-Penning trap and to waves excited on an infinitely long nonneutral beam.
