    Abstract

    The modulational instability of finite-amplitude, longitudinal, nonlinear plasma oscillations in a cold plasma is discussed. Stable and unstable regimes appear alternatively as the wave nonlinear parameter ε varies. A possible laboratory experiment that may confirm this result is suggested.
