Paper Abstract

This work presents the reduction of the collective bremsstrahlung recoil force on the bare charge of an unperturbed relativistic test particle in a nonequilibrium beam-plasma system. In this part of the bremsstrahlung process, the field of the test particle is scattered by the second- and third-order dynamic polarization current that is induced by the test particle and acts back on the bare charge of the unperturbed test particle. The expressions obtained here are to be used in determining the conditions for occurrence of a possible collective bremsstrahlung radiative instability in a nonequilibrium relativistic beam-plasma system.
