Nonminimal electrodynamics and resonance interactions in a relativistic plasma

A.B. Balakin and R.K. Muharlyamov1


A three-parameter toy model which describes a nonminimal coupling of gravity with the electromagnetic field of a relativistic two-component electrically neutral plasma, is discussed. Resonance interactions between particles and transversal waves in the plasma are shown to take place due to the curvature coupling effect.
