13. For example, for anharmonic oscillations, can be constructed iteratively, along the lines of existing iterative approaches to NDR (Refs. 16 and 18). Yet, in practice, the spatial profile is most often assumed to be prescribed, e.g., sinusoidal. Within this commonly accepted approach, our method becomes particularly useful, because then is known immediately.
19. Some of the fluid nonlinearities, yielding , are retained in Eq. (10) due to the nonlinear dependence J(p). However, describing these effects accurately would require accounting for the contribution of the wave second harmonic, which is of the same order.

23. To reduce the results of Ref. 10 to Eq. (11), the former must be amended in two aspects. First, rather than ni, it is f that must be adjusted to ensure that (i.e., must be fixed); this changes Fi. Second, when summing over the contributions of multiple waterbags in Eqs. (24)–(26) of Ref. 10, the weight must be F(J)ΔJ rather than f′Δu.

A general nonlinear dispersion relation is derived in a nondifferential form for an adiabatic sinusoidal Langmuir wave in collisionless plasma, allowing for an arbitrary distribution of trapped electrons. The linear dielectric function is generalized, and the nonlinear kinetic frequency shift ωNL is found analytically as a function of the wave amplitude a. Smooth distributions yield , as usual. However, beam-like distributions of trapped electrons result in different power laws, or even a logarithmic nonlinearity, which are derived as asymptotic limits of the same dispersion relation. Such beams are formed whenever the phase velocity changes, because the trapped distribution is in autoresonance and thus evolves differently from the passing distribution. Hence, even adiabatic ωNL(a) is generally nonlocal.
