Title: Two-dimensional wake potentials in sub- and supersonic dusty plasmas

Abstract

Hot electrons and sub- and supersonic flows of cold ions around a charged dust particle create steady state wake and Debye screening fields. These linear, electrostatic fields are studied in two-dimensional planar or cylindrical geometry. An asymptotic analysis in the limit of large (compared to Debye length) downstream coordinate z yields analytic wakefields that are in good agreement with numerical integrations of the linear, steady state response function.(c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.
