Kinetic and quantum electrodynamical theory for circularly polarized waves in a plasma
2007 (English)In: Physics Letters A, Vol. 371, 462- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The theory for large amplitude circularly polarized waves propagating along an external magnetic field is further developed. Relativistic effects, quantum electrodynamical effects due to vacuum polarization and magnetization, as well as kinetic effects are included in our formalism. A general dispersion relation, which unites previous results, is derived. As a specific example, a low-frequency kinetic mode with a detailed dependence on the electron distribution function is studied.
