    The currents which charge a macroscopic particle placed in a plasma consist of discrete charges; hence, the charge can undergo random fluctuations about its equilibrium value. These random fluctuations can be described by a simple model which, if the mechanisms for charging of macroscopic...

    Using the reductive perturbation technique, a cylindrical and (or) spherical Korteweg - de Vries (KdV) equation is derived for a dust-ion acoustic solitary wave (DIASW) in an unmagnetized dusty plasma, whose constituents are adiabatic ion fluid, nonextensive electrons, and negatively charged...

    In this work we present results obtained using a kinetic approach for parallel propagation of waves in a homogeneous magnetized dusty plasma. In this magnetized plasma we consider embedded spherical dust grains with constant radius and variable charge. We consider that the principal process of...

    In this paper, the effect of collisions on the charging and shielding of a single dust particle immersed in an infinite plasma is studied. A Monte-Carlo collision (MCC) algorithm is implemented in the particle-in-cell DEMOCRITUS code to account for the collisional phenomena which are typical of...
