Title: Dust and dust-void structures in the presence of the ion diffusion

Abstract

The structure of the dust void boundary and the distribution of the dust and plasma parameters in the dust structure bordering the void is analyzed taking into account effects of dissipation due to the ion diffusion on plasma neutrals. Numerical calculations demonstrate various sorts of diffusive dust void structures; the possibility of singularities in the balance equations caused by the diffusion process inside the dust structures is investigated. These singularities can be responsible for a new type of shock-like structures.
