This book is devoted to the non-linear theory of the collective interaction between a modulated beam of relativistic charged particles and narrow electromagnetic and Langmuir wave packets in plasma or gas slow-wave systems. Regular oscillations excited by a relativistic beam under the conditions of Cherenkov resonance and the anomalous Doppler effect can be used to generate coherent microwave radiation and accelerate charged particles in plasma.
