dc.description.abstractUnder the conditions of quasitransverse propagation of electromagnetic waves in a magnetoionic plasma, the effect analogous to Faraday rotation in the quasilongítudinal case (which we will call Faraday pulsation) can produce a large elliptical polarization of originally linearly polarized radiation. Therefore, the presence of elliptical polarization in the radiation cannot serve as a means for distinguishing between a synchrotron mechanism with high energy electrons and any other type of emission process in radio sources in which conditions suggesting quasi - transverse propagation (large magnetic fields) may take place. The Faraday pulsation has a wavelength dependence through which it can be identified.
