ABSTRACT: An essence of the driven wave formalism is discussed. This new method is suitable for the wave processes in the inhomogeneous medium, and it reveals more complex nature of an initial waveform evolution than the standard WKB approach. Using this formalism, several very important processes, which have not been addressed before, were discovered. In this talk, I will review results of our earlier studies about (1) how the driven waves are generated, (2) how they can be described analytically, and (3) how driven waves can influence plasma particles. I will discuss possible effects of the driven waves on the solar, magnetospheric, ionospheric and laboratory plasma dynamics.
