Abstract [en]

We present here a comprehensive review of some of the main nonlinear effects involving wave–wave and wave–particle interactions in space plasmas. Attention is focused on three-wave decay interactions, modulational instabilities, wave localization and the formation of structures caused by ponderomotive forces, differential electron Joule heating, and self-wave interactions of high- and low-frequency electromagnetic waves. We present nonlinear dispersion relations and their analysis, as well as the dynamics of nonlinearly interacting modes with the background plasma. The relevance of our investigation to space plasmas is discussed.
