Abstract

An introduction is given into two subjects of the theory of plasma waves and their numerical treatment with the finite element method : Linear propagation in an inhomogeneous medium and quasilinear theory. It is attempted to present the two subjects in such a way that the knowledge of plasma physics is not a prerequisite. With the information contained here a non-specialist should be able to appreciate at least the numerical part of the specialized research papers devoted to the subjects.
