Abstract
The general form is derived, from first principles, for the collective bremsstrahlung recoil force on a test particle participating in a bremsstrahlung process in a relativistic nonequilibrium beam-plasma system. The force is expressed in terms of the particle and photon distribution functions and the bremsstrahlung transition rate. This relationship is useful in calculations of collective radiation processes and the conditions for the occurrence of bremsstrahlung radiative instability in relativistic beam-plasma systems.
