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)
