This is done within the linear response theory as a reaction of the single-particle distribution function to a periodic external field. The nonperturbative dispersion equation is derived in the relaxation time approximation and solved numerically. The obtained theoretical results demonstrate an universal dependence of the sound velocity and scaled absorption coefficient on the variable wт , where w is the sound frequency, and т<sup>−1 </sup>is the particle collision frequency. In the region of wт ∼ 1, a transition from the frequent- to rare-collision regime takes place. The sound velocity increases sharply, and the scaled absorption coefficient has a maximum – both theoretical findings are in agreement with the data.</p>}, number={3}, journal={Ukrainian Journal of Physics}, author={Magner, A.
