Paper Abstract

In a nonequilibrium beam-plasma system, the contribution of the polarization charge to the total force on a relativistic test particle, namely the dynamic polarization force, is calculated to fourth order in the total electromagnetic field for a slowly varying, nearly spatially independent background distribution with no external fields. This relation is useful in calculations of collective radiation processes and the conditions for the occurrence of collective radiative instability in relativistic beam-plasma systems.
