Theory of stimulated Brillouin scattering in a low-density plasma
Zozulya A. A. , Silin V. P. , Tikhonchuk V. T.
The convective stimuiated-Brillouin-scattering instability, which is usually considered in the case of an inhomogeneous low-density plasma, occurs only if the dissipation of sound is rapid. If this dissipation is only slight, an absolute stimulated-Brillouin-scattering instability occurs.
