    Abstract

    Parametric decays of a circularly polarized wave propagating along a constant magnetic field in an electron-positron plasma are studied. Fully relativistic effects on the particle velocity in the wave field are considered, as well as kinetic effects in the parallel direction, by means of a one-dimensional relativistic Vlasov equation. In this approximation, a dispersion relation is found for the parametric decays which describes the coupling between normal modes of the system, namely electromagnetic sideband modes and Langmuir waves.
