In this communication the authors have derived an expression for the conductivity tensor of a Lorentzian plasma in the presence of a static magnetic field, which is correct to terms involving the square of the amplitude of the electric vector. This expression along with the wave equation has been used to obtain a second-order solution for the electric vector in the magnetoplasma. The phenomenon of demodulation of an amplitude-modulated wave has also been briefly discussed.
