Title: Interaction of dust-ion acoustic solitary waves in nonplanar geometry with electrons featuring Tsallis distribution

Abstract

The head-on collisions between nonplanar dust-ion acoustic solitary waves are dealt with by an extended version of Poincare-Lighthill-Kuo perturbation method, for a plasma having stationary dust grains, inertial ions, and nonextensive electrons. The nonplanar geometry modified analytical phase-shift after a head-on collision is derived. It is found that as the nonextensive character of the electrons becomes important, the phase-shift decreases monotonically before levelling-off at a constant value. This leads us to think that nonextensivity may have a stabilizing effect on the phase-shift.
