Abstract. A review of analysis methods is given on quasi-monochromatic waves, turbulent fluctuations, and 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.
