Nonlinear modulated dust lattice wave packets in twodimensional hexagonal dust crystals
Abstract
The amplitude modulation of dust lattice waves (DLWs) propagating in a twodimensional hexagonal dust crystal is investigated in a continuum approximation, accounting for the effect of dust charge polarization (dressed interactions). A dusty plasma crystalline configuration with constant dust grain charge and mass is considered. The dispersion relation and the group velocity for DLWs are determined for wave propagation in both longitudinal and transverse directions. The reductive perturbation method is used to derive a (2+1)dimensional nonlinear Schroedinger equation (NLSE). New expressions for the coefficients of the NLSE are derived and compared, for a Yukawatype potential energy and for a 'dressed' potential energy, taking into account interaction and geometric nonlinearities.

The propagation of nonlinear dustlattice waves in a twodimensional hexagonal crystal is investigated. Transverse (offplane) dust grain oscillatory motion is considered in the form of a backward propagating wave packet whose linear and nonlinear characteristics are investigated. An evolution equation is obtained for the slowly varying amplitude of the first (fundamental) harmonic by making use of a twodimensional lattice multiple scales technique. An analysis based on the continuum approximation (spatially extended excitations compared to the lattice spacing) shows that wave packets will be modulationally stable and that darktype envelope solitons (density holes) may occur in the long wavelength region.

Dust Lattice Waves in TwoDimensional Hexagonal Dust Crystals with an External Magnetic Field
The influence of a constant magnetic field on the propagation of dustlattice (DL) modes in a twodimensional hexagonal strongly coupled plasma crystal formed by paramagnetic particles is considered. The expression for the wave dispersion relation clearly shows that highfrequency and lowfrequency branches exist as a result of the coupling of longitudinal and transverse modes due to the Lorentz force acting on the dust particles. 
Lattice Wave Dispersion Relation in TwoDimensional Hexagonal Crystals with Charge Fluctuation
Taking into account the random charge fluctuation on embedded micro spheres in low pressure gas discharge two differential equation for twodimensional dust lattice wave is derived. 2D hexagonal crystal is investigated in this paper. The dispersion relation for both longitudinal and transverse waves in different direction is studied as well. It is in agreement between analytical results and the experimental ones reported previously. 
Modulational instability and nonlinear evolution of twodimensional electrostatic wave packets in ultrarelativistic degenerate dense plasmas
We consider the nonlinear propagation of electrostatic wave packets in an ultrarelativistic (UR) degenerate dense electronion plasma, whose dynamics is governed by the nonlocal twodimensional nonlinear Schroedingerlike equations. The coupled set of equations is then used to study the modulational instability (MI) of a uniform wave train to an infinitesimal perturbation of multidimensional form. The condition for the MI is obtained, and it is shown that the nondimensional parameter, {beta}{proportional_to}{lambda}{sub C}n{sub 0}{sup 1/3} (where {lambda}{sub C} is the reduced Compton wavelength and n{sub 0} is the particle number density) associated with the UR pressure of degenerate electrons, shifts the stablemore » 
Dust grain oscillations in twodimensional hexagonal dusty plasma crystals in the presence of a magnetic field
The influence of a constant magnetic field on the propagation of dustlattice waves in a twodimensional hexagonal strongly coupled dusty plasma crystal is considered. The expression for the wave dispersion relation clearly shows that high and lowfrequency dust lattice vibrations exist as a result of the coupling between the longitudinal and transverse dust lattice modes due to the Lorentz force acting on the charged dust particles. It is found that in an external magnetic field the damping rate of the highfrequency (lowfrequency) dust lattice wave is increased (decreased). For special values of the wave number and the direction of themore »
