Abstract : The polarization of the plasma particles in the neighborhood of a moving ion depends on the ion velocity. This affects the distribution of the stochastic field acting upon the ion. Correction to the Holtsmark distribution due to the complete test particle  field particle correlation including this dynamic effect is calculated up to the order e to the second power. The result is: (1) shift toward smaller fields, (2) anisotropy and (3) velocity dependence, which is not equal to the zero velocity effect even on the average. (Author)
