Abstract

The Vlasov equation is solved numerically to study the relaxation of the electron and ion distributions during the development of the hydrodynamic resonant parametric instability, which occurs in a strong electromagnetic field (V//E VM GT TH V//T//O). Comparison of the results with the results of the quasilinear theory shows that the mechanism studied here for the suppression of the instability, due to a resonant interaction of the bulk of the electrons with the quasi-one-dimensional perturbation field, is effective in a real three-dimensional situation.
