Title: Linear and nonlinear dust ion acoustic solitary waves in a quantum dusty electron-positron-ion plasma

Abstract

The behavior of linear and nonlinear dust ion acoustic (DIA) solitary waves in an unmagnetized quantum dusty plasma, including inertialess electrons and positrons, ions, and mobile negative dust grains, are studied. Reductive perturbation and Sagdeev pseudopotential methods are employed for small and large amplitude DIA solitary waves, respectively. A minimum value of the Mach number obtained for the existence of solitary waves using the analytical expression of the Sagdeev potential. It is observed that the variation on the values of the plasma parameters such as different values of Mach number M, ion to electron Fermi temperature ratio σ, and quantum diffraction parameter H can lead to the creation of compressive solitary waves.

  • The nonlinear propagation of dust-ion-acoustic (DIA) waves in a dusty plasma containing trapped electrons following vortex-like distribution, cold mobile ions, and arbitrarily charged static dust is theoretically investigated. The properties of small but finite amplitude DIA solitary waves (SWs) are studied by employing the reductive perturbation technique. It is found that owing to the departure from the Maxwellian electron distribution to a vortex-like one, the dynamics of such DIA SWs is governed by a modified Korteweg-de Vries equation. The basic features (amplitude, width, speed, etc.) of such DIA SWs, which are found to be significantly modified by the vortex-like electronmore » distribution and dust polarity, are also examined. The implications of our results to space and laboratory dusty plasmas are briefly discussed.« less
  • A theoretical investigation has been performed on a strongly coupled dusty plasma containing strongly correlated negatively charged dust grains and weakly correlated adiabatic electrons and ions. The adiabatic effects on the dust-acoustic (DA) solitary and shock waves propagating in such a strongly coupled dusty plasma are taken into account. The DA solitary and shock waves are found to exist with negative potential only. It has been shown that the strong correlation among the charged dust grains is a source of dissipation and is responsible for the formation of the DA shock waves. It has also been found that the effectsmore » of adiabaticity significantly modify the basic features (e.g., amplitude, width, speed, etc.) of the DA solitary and shock waves. It has been suggested that a laboratory experiment be performed to test the theory presented in this work.« less
  • A first theoretical work is presented to study variable charge dust acoustic solitons within the theoretical framework of the Tsallis statistical mechanics. Our results reveal that the spatial patterns of the variable charge solitary wave are significantly modified by electron nonextensive effects. In particular, it may be noted that for -1<q<1 (where q stands for the electron nonextensive parameter) the soliton pulse amplitude increases while its width is narrowed as q->1. As the electrons deviate from their thermodynamic equilibrium, the dust grain charge Q{sub d} becomes more negative and the dust grains localization (accumulation) less pronounced. The electrons are locallymore » expelled and pushed out of the region of the soliton's localization. This electron depletion becomes less effective as the electrons evolve far away from their thermal equilibrium. The case q>1 provides qualitatively opposite results: electron nonextensivity makes the solitary structure more spiky. Our results should help in providing a good fit between theoretical and experimental results.« less
  • The properties of small but finite amplitude dust ion-acoustic (DIA) solitary waves (SWs) as well double layers (DLs) in a dusty plasma containing warm adiabatic ions, electrons following flat-topped velocity distribution, and arbitrarily (positively or negatively) charged immobile dust are studied. The effects of ion-temperature, resonant electrons, and dust number density are found to significantly modify the criteria for the existence of the DIA SWs and DLs, as well as significantly modify their basic features. It is also shown that the ion-temperature reduces the possibility for the formation of these localized structures, and that their amplitude decreases (increases) with themore » increase in the negative (positive) dust number density.« less
  • A theoretical investigation has been made on the oblique propagation of arbitrary dust-acoustic solitary waves in an electron depleted magnetized dusty plasma which consists of kappa distributed ions and negatively charged warm dust fluid. The electron number density is assumed to be sufficiently depleted owing to the electron attachment during the dust charging process, i.e., n{sub e} Much-Less-Than n{sub i}. The propagation properties of two possible modes (in the linear regime) are investigated. It is found that deviation of ions from thermodynamic equilibrium leads to a decrease of the phase velocity of both modes. A nonlinear pseudopotential approach is employedmore » to derive an energy-like equation which admits to investigate the occurrence of stationary solitary wave solution for the propagation of arbitrary amplitude. The effects of superthermality, obliqueness, and external magnetic field on the existence domain and nature of these solitary waves are discussed. Only negative polarity of solitary waves is found to exist. It is shown that an increase of ion superthermality leads to the appearance of the solitary waves with smaller Mach numbers. The influence of dust temperature on the existence domain of solitary structures is increase of the permitted Mach number. It is also found that the superthermality supports the solitary structures with larger amplitude.« less
