Title: Self-sustained exothermic reaction of anti-Stokes gamma transitions in long-lived isomeric nuclei. III

This paper is a continuation of our two previous publications under the same title and is devoted to the features of a chain reaction proceeding upon nonequilibrium radiation of a plasma in the presence of nonradiative decay channels of the trigger level and other processes. The required accuracy of the resonance of nuclei with a line spectrum of ions in the plasma and the criterion for a positive energy effect in the case of pulsed combustion reaction are analysed and an example of the numerical estimate of the reaction parameters for the isomeric {sup 242}{sub 95}Am nucleus is considered. (laser applications and other topics in quantum electronics)
