We report on theoretical and computational work related to studies of waves in plasmas. This group's work is aimed at understanding large-amplitude, coherent waves in a plasma in general, and their use in plasma heating in particular. Progress on four research topics is described. (a) Nonlinear Waves in the Presence of Collisions The one-dimensional(More)
