Abstract : The purpose of the present investigation was to show that for a pre-oscillating medium, i.e. a medium that oscillates in time and space even in the absence of a Cerenkov electron, side-bands of the original Cerenkov radiation spectrum will be generated and to determine the characteristics of the associated waves. Utilization was made of classical electrodynamics to solve the problem and express the disturbance in the medium by a propagating term in the dielectric constant describing the medium macroscopically.
