systems). This has made possible new-type beam-plasma generators
and amplifiers of both regular and broadband stochastic
oscillations of continuous- and quasicontinuous-wave mode
(metric- to centimeter- wave bands). Stochastic radiation powers

moving-charge emission and the parameters of corresponding
quantitative radiation instabilities of intense flows of the
mentioned charges. This method has been efficient in identifying
the mechanisms of a number of such instabilities.
