Review article: Wave analysis methods for space plasma experiment

Abstract. A review of analysis methods is given on quasi-monochromatic waves, turbulent fluctuations, wave-wave and wave-particle interactions for single-spacecraft data in situ in near-Earth space and interplanetary space, in particular using magnetic field and electric field data. Energy spectra for different components of the fluctuating fields, minimum variance analysis, propagation and polarization properties of electromagnetic waves, wave distribution function, helicity quantities, higher-order statistics, and detection methods for wave-particle interactions are explained.

Short summary
There is an increasing amount of methods to determine observationally physical properties of waves, turbulent fluctuations, and wave-wave and wave-particle interactions in space plasma environment using the magnetic field, the electric field, and the plasma data obtained from single spacecraft misions. The methods are useful not only in the previous or on-going spacecraft missions but also in planning the upcoming space plasma experiments.
