Nonlinear dispersion and transverse profile of intense electromagnetic waves, propagating through electronpositronion hot magnetoplasma
Abstract
Selfguided nonlinear propagation of intense circularlypolarized electromagnetic waves in a hot electronpositronion magnetoplasma is studied. Using a relativistic fluid model, a nonlinear equation is derived, which describes the interaction of the electromagnetic wave with the plasma in the quasineutral approximation. Transverse Eigen modes, the nonlinear dispersion relation and the group velocity are obtained. Results show that the transverse profile in the case of magnetized plasma with cylindrical symmetry has a radially damping oscillatory form. Effect of applying external magnetic fields, existence of the electronpositron pairs, changing the amplitude of the electromagnetic wave, and its polarization on the nonlinear dispersion relation and Eigen modes are studied.

A kinetic equation describing the nonlinear evolution of intense electromagnetic pulses in electronpositron (ep) plasmas is presented. The modulational instability is analyzed for a relativistically intense partially coherent pulse, and it is found that the modulational instability is inhibited by the spectral pulse broadening. A numerical study for the onedimensional kinetic photon equation is presented. Computer simulations reveal a FermiPastaUlamtype recurrence phenomenon for localized broadband pulses. The results should be of importance in understanding the nonlinear propagation of broadband intense electromagnetic pulses in ep plasmas in laserplasma systems as well as in astrophysical plasma settings.

Relativistically intense plane electromagnetic waves in electronpositron plasmas: Nonlinear selfmodulation and harmonics generation regimes
A fully nonlinear onedimensional problem describing the interactions of relativistically intense plane electromagnetic waves and cold locally nonneutral electronpositron plasmas is derived from Maxwell and fluid dynamics equations. Numerical and asymptotic solutions to this problem for phase velocities close to the speed of light are presented. Depending on the magnitude of the plasma longitudinal electricfield potential, the system considered is found to support two distinct regimes of plane electromagnetic wave propagation: a nonlinear selfmodulation one with the coupling of a fast transversely polarized electromagnetic field to a slow longitudinal plasma field, and a harmonics generation one with both of thesemore » 
Nonlinear interaction of intense electromagnetic waves with a magnetoactive electronpositronion plasma
The nonlinear coupling between circularly polarized electromagnetic (CPEM) waves and acousticlike waves in a magnetoactive electronpositronion (epi) plasma is studied, taking into account the relativistic motion of electrons and positrons. The possibility of modulational instability and its growth rate as well as the envelope soliton formation and its characteristics in such plasmas are investigated. It is found that the growth rate of modulation instability increases in the case that ω{sub c}/ω<1 (ω{sub c} and ω are the electron gyrofrequency and the CPEM wave frequency, respectively) and decreases in the case that ω{sub c}/ω>1. It is also shown that in amore »
