Abstract
A formalism is developed to treat the (T-1D) dynamics of the interactions between relativistically intense laser pulses and cold underdense plasma electron component oscillations. Asymptotic solutions to the Maxwell and electron fluid dynamics equations are developed in the Compton limit, where the ratio of the plasma and the optical field frequencies plays the role of a small parameter. The strong electromagnetic waves are described by applying the envelope approximation to the Akhiezer-Polovin waveforms. A theory of plasmon generation by the propagating laser pulse and of the corresponding nonlinear self-modulation of its envelope is established.
