Development principles
Nonlinear effects in space plasmas influence generation and propagation of electromagnetic emissions, especially those which are generated with embedded discrete time-frequency structures. Whistler mode chorus is a good example of these waves which are found in the space environment of the Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars.

This PhD thesis work will be mainly focused on improving fundamental theoretical understanding of the nonlinear behavior of plasma waves or on numerical simulations based on current prominent theories.

Specific tasks include:
