Korteweg de Vries Burgers equation for negative ion degenerate dissipative plasma has been derived using reductive perturbation technique. The quantum hydrodynamic model is used to study the quantum ion acoustic shock waves. The effects of different parameters on quantum ion acoustic shock waves are studied. It is found that quantum parameter, electrons Fermi temperature, temperature of positive and negative ions, mass ratio of positive to negative ions, viscosity, and density ratio have significant impact on the shock wave structure in negative ion degenerate plasma.

    Using a standard reductive perturbation technique, Shah et al. [Phys.

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...
