The textual content provided this is a longer english model of a document by means of the authors which seemed in April 1983 on the Institute of Cosmical learn of the Academy of Sciences of the GDR in German. It covers a number of chosen subject matters on nonlinear wave-plasma interactio,ll in a therapy in keeping with a hydrodynamic plasma description. hence, no try has been made to provide a finished view on all points of the interplay of sturdy electromagnetic waves with plasmas. The textual content is partially introductory and provides in part present effects. The authors wish that it'll be of curiosity to scholars and scientists not just within the box of plasma physics. The authors thank Akademie-Verlag, Berlin and Birkhiiuser-Verlag, Basel for his or her encouragement to organize the English manuscript and Mrs. Ch. Geier for conscientiously typing the ultimate off-set model.
