Magnetosonic solitons in a dusty plasma slab

Abstract [en]

The existence of magnetosonic solitons in dusty plasmas is investigated. The nonlinear magnetohydrodynamic equations for a warm dusty magnetoplasma are thus derived. A solution of the nonlinear equations is presented. It is shown that, owing to the presence of dust, static structures are allowed. This is in sharp contrast to the formation of the so-called shocklets in usual magnetoplasmas. A comparatively small number of dust particles can thus drastically alter the behavior of the nonlinear structures in magnetized plasmas.
