A theory of Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation with regard to nonlinear properties of the medium is developed. We show that in the area of radiation threshold (for small angles of Cherenkov cone opening) the dependence of the radiation intensity on the beam current and particle velocity may have a hysteresis character.
