Abstract
Bernstein's theory predicts zero group velocity at frequencies for which resonances have not previously been observed. Asimplified approximate equation has been developed by Stix and improved by Dougherty and Monaghan to predict the frequencies at which these electrostatic resonances should appear. The resonances observed by instruments carried on satellites may correspond to a finite group velocity that matches the velocity of the satellites.
