Beginning from the set of cold-fluid plus Maxwell equations in the instantaneous, Lorentz-boosted Pulse Co-Moving Frame (PCMF), a new quasi-static theory is developed to describe the nonlinear pulse evolutions due to the wakefield excitation, and is verified through comparison with particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations. According to this theory, the plasma-motion can be treated perturbatively and produces quasi-static wakefield in the PCMF, and the pulse envelope is governed by a form of the…

TLDR
In the nonadiabatic limit, the coupling of forward Raman scattering and the self-modulation instability (SMI) is analyzed and growth rates are derived, including regimes of reduced growth.
Propagation and guiding of intense laser pulses in plasmas.
A two-dimensional, axisymmetric, relativistic fluid model describing the propagation of intense laser pulses in plasmas is formulated and numerically evaluated. Relativistic guiding is ineffective in

TLDR
Differential equations which model the instability for arbitrarily large pump strengths are derived and exact solutions are obtained for a set of physically relevant initial conditions.
