Abstract : An expression is obtained for the total electric field associated with collective bremsstrahlung in a nonequilibrium relativistic beam-plasma system in the case of a slowly varying, nearly spatially independent background distribution with no external fields. The field is assumed to consist of an unperturbed regular part corresponding to the nonradiative part of the field of the particles and a stochastic part corresponding to the bremsstrahlung radiation field. The relations derived here are needed in calculations of collective bremsstrahlung processes and the conditions for the occurrence of bremsstrahlung radiative instability in relativistic beam-plasma systems.
