Nonlinear classical theory of induced Compton scattering by relativistic charges
Abstract
Attention is focused on the resonant interaction between a single charged particle, treated relativistically, and two coherent electromagnetic waves. This model interaction is chosen to elucidate aspects of the nonlinear theory of induced scattering. A welldefined problem of finite duration is studied, namely, the induced scattering of plane radiation pulses of arbitrary shape. The factors which affect the net wave conversion from one pulse to the other by a nearly resonant particle are investigated analytically.
