The reductive perturbation method has been used to derive the Korteweg-de Vries-Burger equation and modified Korteweg-de Vries-Burger for dust acoustic shock waves in a homogeneous unmagnetized plasma having electrons, singly charged ions, hot and cold dust species with Boltzmann distributions for electrons and ions in the presence of the cold (hot) dust viscosity coefficients. The behavior of the shock waves in the dusty plasma has been investigated.

    The contribution of electron viscosity to shock heating of high-Z plasmas is investigated. A classical shock profile calculation is employed to show that the electron viscosity substantially affects the structure of strong shock waves in a fully ionized plasma by reducing the overheating of the...

    Dust-ion-acoustic (DIA) shock waves are studied in an unmagnetized quantum plasma consisting of electrons, ions, and dust by employing the quantum hydrodynamic (QHD) model. In this context, a Korteweg–deVries–Burger (KdVB) equation is derived by employing the small amplitude...

    The problem of nonlinear variable charge dust acoustic solitary waves in dusty plasma with relativistic electrons and ions is addressed. The appropriate relativistic charging currents, derived within the theoretical framework of the orbit-limited motion theory, are used. Our results show that in...

    Dust particles appear on the edge of the tokamak plasma as a result of disruptions and plasma interactions with divertor plates, limiters, or blankets, as well as of pellet injections. The transport of dust in plasmas may play a significant role in the performance of next step tokamaks such as...

    In a magnetized dusty plasma, Hall effect can arise due to collisional processes when, e.g., ion-dust collision decouples the ions from the magnetic field. In this case, due to the dust stoppage of the ions, the Hall electric field can be generated over large scales. The same collisional...

    The isolated charged dust inside the magnetized plasma sheath moves under the influence of the electron and ion drag force and the sheath electrostatic field. The charge on the dust is a function of its radius as well as the value of the ambient sheath potential. It is shown that the charge on...

    The fine structure of cometary tails (swirls, loops and blobs) is studied in the framework of resistive magnetic reconnection without a guide field in a dusty plasma. For a high-beta plasma (β ∼ 1) consisting of electrons, ions, and immobile dust grains, a two-fluid description is used...
