Abstract

Classical particles oscillating in high-frequency or static fields effectively exhibit a modified rest mass Meff which determines the oscillation center motion. Unlike the true mass, meff depends on the field parameters and can be a nonanalytic function of the particle average velocity and the oscillation energy; hence non-Newtonian "metaplasmas" that permit a new type of plasma maser, signal rectification, frequency doubling, and one-way walls.
