Nonlinear reflection and transmission of electromagnetic waves by moving plasmas
(1971)Based on the covariance principle of Maxwell's equations and phaseinvariance principle (derived from the special theory of relativity), expressions for the nonlinear reflection and transmission of electromagnetic waves ...
