Book deals with radiation emission moving through plasmas and will be of interest to nuclear physicists, astrophysicsts. Russians very strong on plasma physics. Topical research, original material not available before. First appeared in 1984 but this translation includes two new chapters bringing it up to date, new referennces, 100 pages longer than previous edition. Usual criticism of translations does not apply as it's completely rewritten and revised. Ginzburg is one of the world's leading theoretical physicists. Tystovich is well known in the west, travels a lot, sometimes works in UK. AIP have other plasma books to promote with this. Plasma Physics Series.
Radiation of a charge moving uniformly along a straight line (general introduction). Basic theory of transition radiation. Some problems of the theory of transition radiation in different media.
