Title: Dust ion-acoustic shock waves in an adiabatic dusty plasma

Abstract

The properties of dust ion-acoustic shock waves in an unmagnetized dusty plasma, whose constituents are adiabatic ion fluid, Boltzmann electrons, and static dust, are investigated by employing the reductive perturbation method. The Burgers equation is derived and its stationary analytical solution is numerically analyzed. It has been found that both the amplitude and the width decrease with the increase of the ion-fluid temperature. The implications of our results in space and laboratory dusty plasmas are briefly discussed.
