Large amplitude dust acoustic solitary waves and double layers in a nonthermal plasma consisting of positively charged dust grains, nonthermal electrons, and isothermal ions including the effect of dust temperature have been studied using the Sagdeev potential technique by a computational scheme. The effect of different parameters on the nature of existence of solitary waves and double layers has been investigated to delimit their compositional parameter space. The physics corresponding to the computational result has been pointed out.
