The stability of a cold ion-ring velocity distribution in a thermal plasma is analyzed. In particular, the effect of plasma temperature and density on the instability is considered. A high ring density (compared to the background plasma) neutralizes the stabilizing effect of the warm background...

The interaction of an electron beam with inhomogeneous magnetized cold plasma resulting in increasing of beam plasma instability has been studied. The variation in the plasma density has a profound effect on the spatial beam plasma instability. In addition, an applied external static magnetic...

- Solitary electrostatic waves are possible in unmagnetized symmetric pair plasmas. Dubinov, Alexander E.; Dubinova, Irina D.; Gordienko, Victor A. // Physics of Plasmas;Aug2006, Vol. 13 Issue 8, p082111
A possibility of stationary solitary electrostatic waves with large amplitude in symmetric unmagnetized symmetric pair plasmas (e-e+ plasma, C60-C60+ plasma or e-h+ plasma) is proven. The main idea of the work is a thermodynamic unequilibrium of plasma species which may be created in low-density...

In the present paper, the obliquely propagating solitary waves are investigated in a magnetized dusty plasma considering vortexlike ion distribution and dust size distribution. A plane solitary traveling-wave solution propagating at an arbitrary angle to the magnetic field is considered. The...

- Free boundary ballooning mode representation. Zheng, L. J. // Physics of Plasmas;Oct2012, Vol. 19 Issue 10, p102506
A new type of ballooning mode invariance is found in this paper. Application of this invariance is shown to be able to reduce the two-dimensional problem of free boundary high n modes, such as the peeling-ballooning modes, to a one-dimensional problem. Here, n is toroidal mode number. In...
