The study of the effects of ion composition on perpendicular magnetosonic waves in two-ion-species plasmas [M. Toida, H. Higashino, and Y. Ohsawa, J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 76, 104052 (2007)] is extended to include oblique waves. First, the conditions necessary for KdV equations for low- and high-frequency modes to be valid are analytically obtained. The upper limit of the amplitude of the low-frequency-mode pulse is expressed as a function of the propagation angle θ, density ratio, and cyclotron frequency ratio of the two ion species. Next, with electromagnetic particle simulations, the nonlinear evolution of a long-wavelength low-frequency-mode disturbance is examined for various θs in two plasmas with different ion densities and cyclotron frequency ratios, and the theory for the low-frequency-mode pulse is confirmed. It is also shown that if the pulse amplitude exceeds the theoretical value of the upper limit of the amplitude, then shorter-wavelength low- and high-frequency-mode waves are generated.

    Using a standard reductive perturbation technique, Shah et al. [Phys. Plasmas 17, 122302 (2010)] derived a Korteweg-de Vries like equation, with an additional term due to the assumed equilibrium density and flow inhomogeneities in a pair-ion plasma. Unfortunately, a basic flaw at the beginning...

    The quantity np0(0) is different from np0(x) and same is true for vp0(0), vp0(x). Taking these differences into account and considering the mathematical relation vp0(x)= 1/np0(x), it can easily be shown that derivatives of these space dependent densities and velocities are linked through the...

    In this paper, we study the head-on collision between two dust ion acoustic solitons in quantum pair-ion plasma. Using the extended Poincare-Lighthill-Kuo method, we obtain the Korteweg-de Vries equation, the phase shifts, and the trajectories after the head-on collision of the two dust ion...
