Major Scientific Achievements

Properties of atmospheric waveguides and parametric devices have been analyzed. Earth's atmosphere lensing effect was calculated, and the global troposphere-ionosphere lens was assessed.  Earth-ionosphere waveguide eigenfrequency splitting under the influence of the geomagnetic field was envisaged. The theory of fluctuations in extremely low frequency wave band in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide was developed. A space-time analogy between wave diffraction and radio pulse distortion in a dispersive medium was justified. The theory of stability of highly directive antennas was developed. The wave theory of gravitational lenses was developed. The self-gravitation of particles in the dusty space plasma has been analyzed.

List of publications contains more than 150 publications, which includes 5 monographs.
