The effect of nonthermal electrons with excess of fast energetic electrons on large amplitude electrostatic solitary waves is investigated in a charge varying dusty plasma. The correct nonthermal electron charging is investigated based on the orbit-motion-limited approach. It is found that the nonlinear localized potential structure shrinks when the electrons deviate from isothermality. The dust particles are locally expelled and pushed out the region of the soliton localization as the electrons evolve far away from their thermodynamic equilibrium. Under certain conditions, the dust charge fluctuation may provide an alternate physical mechanism causing anomalous dissipation, the strength of which becomes important and may prevail over that of dispersion as the value of the electron nonthermal parameter α increases.

    The propagation of ion-acoustic (IA) solitons is studied in a plasma system, comprised of warm ions and superthermal (Kappa distributed) electrons in the presence of an electron-beam by using a hydrodynamic model. In the linear analysis, it is seen that increasing the superthermality lowers the...

    The kinetics of geminate subdiffusion-assisted reactions (SDARs) of interacting particles is analyzed in detail with the use of the non-Markovian fractional Smoluchowki equation (FSE). It is suggested that the interparticle interaction potential is of the shape of potential well and reactivity...
