Title: Theoretical and numerical modelling of shocks in dusty plasmas

Abstract

The formation of dust acoustic (DA) and dust ion-acoustic (DIA) shocks are are studied theoretically and numerically by means of simple-wave solutions and a comparison between fluid and kinetic model for DIA waves. A fluid model admits sharp discontinuities at the shock front while the kinetic model involves Landau-damping of the the shock front.
