The collective kinetic interaction of a neutrino distribution with electrostatic waves propagating in a dense plasma is considered. A Klimontovich-type kinetic equation for the neutrino gas in a plasma is derived, and the resulting kinetic description is applied to study the processes of the neutrino Landau damping and the neutrino-beam–plasma instability.
