New mechanisms of plasma bunch acceleration and short wave amplification are proposed. This mechanisms are based on the possibility of effective interaction of charged particle with a field of an intensive transverse electromagnetic wave. This interaction exists despite of both the absence of a resonant interaction of the particle and the wave and the absence of high frequency pressure forces. The possibility of the interaction results from the rigorous solution of the problem of movement of a charged particle in electromagnetic field with an arbitrary strength. It is shown, that this interaction can be used both for effective acceleration of plasma bunches and for electromagnetic wave acceleration. The strength of longitudinal electric field, that accelerates plasma ions can be more than the intensity of the transverse field of accelerating electromagnetic wave.
