ABSTRACT
Linear and nonlinear propagations of quantum ion acoustic waves in positive, negative ions and electron plasma have been vetted via the dispersion relation and Korteweg–de Vries equation, where the ions are inertial and electrons are inertialess. The quantum mechanical effects arising due to the quantum diffraction and Fermi–Dirac statistics for this system are taken into account. The existence, as well as the type (compressive/rarefactive) of solitary wave propagating in the system, is strongly dependent on the numerical value of dimensionless quantum parameter He. It is observed that negative ion population and ion mass ratio have emphatic influence on the phase velocity of ion acoustic wave and the propagation of localized coherent solitary structures at quantum scale in the system.
