This work considers nonlinear oscillations in an inhomogeneous electron flux moving in a high-frequency field between two parallel planes placed perpendicular to the beam motion. It is shown with the help of the Hamiltonian formalism in the threewave approximation that under specific conditions there occurs a periodic exchange of energy between the high-frequency field and the electron flux and also between the long-wave and short-wave harmonics of the flux.
