Abstract : Obtaining a high-temperature plasma is a basic difficulty in problems of controlled fusion. Various methods have been proposed, such as injection of a stream of charged particles into the plasma. The work analyses various processes that may occur in the energy conversion from stream to plasma. These processes are collision inter actions and high frequency interactions between the stream and plasma. More emphasis is given to the latter. (Author)
