    The neoclassical calculation of the helicon wave theory contains a fundamental flaw. Use is made of a proportional relationship between the magnetic field and its curl to derive the Helmholtz equation describing helicon wave propagation. However, by the fundamental theorem of Stokes, the curl of...

    Analytic solutions are presented to the non-paraxial wave equation describing an ultra-short, low-power, laser pulse propagating in a plasma channel. Expressions for the laser pulse centroid motion and laser group velocity are derived, valid for matched and mismatched propagation in a parabolic...

    We consider the initial boundary value problem of the long-short wave equations on the whole line. Firstly, a fully discrete Hermite pseudospectral scheme and modified Hermite spectral scheme are structured basing Hermite functions, respectively. Secondly, we analyze the two kinds of schemes...

    A numerical approach to the solution of the wave equation is performed by means of the boundary element method. In the interest of increasing the efficiency of this method a low‐rank approximation such as the adaptive cross approximation is carried out. We discuss a generalization of the...

    Recent studies of nonmodal phenomena in two-component plasma flows revealed that the velocity shear induces a number of new effects both in electrostatic and magnetized shear flows. It can be expected that dusty plasmas also host shear-modified and shear-induced modes of collective behavior,...
