The nonlinear wave structure of electron-acoustic waves (EAWs) is investigated in a three component unmagnetized dense quantum plasma consisting of two distinct groups of electrons (one inertial cold electron, and other inertialess hot electrons) and immobile ions. By employing one dimensional quantum hydrodynamic model and standard reductive perturbation technique, a Korteweg–de-Vries equation governing the dynamics of EAWs is derived. Both compressive and rarefactive solitons along with periodical potential structures are found to exist for various ranges of dimensionless quantum parameter H. The quantum mechanical effects are also examined numerically on the profiles of the amplitude and the width of electron-acoustic solitary waves. It is observed that both the amplitude and the width of electron-acoustic solitary waves are significantly affected by the parameter H. The relevance of the present investigation to the astrophysical ultradense plasmas is also discussed.

    In the description of (high-frequency) electron-acoustic solitons in a plasma consisting of positive ions, cool electrons, and hot electrons, the dynamics of the ions plays no essential role and can be eliminated from the treatment, the ions merely providing a constant positive background. It is...

    For a given number of electrons, total spin, and matching spin z-component, we construct a set that spans the many-electron spin subspace associated with these spin values. Each vector in the set is tensorially related to spin-pure vectors of six electrons or less. We show that in the limit of...
