ABSTRACT
We construct the longitudinal traveling wave solution [Akhiezer and Polovin, Sov. Phys. JETP 3, 696 (1956)] from the exact space and time dependent solution of relativistic cold electron fluid equations [Infeld and Rowlands, Phys. Rev. Lett. 62, 1122 (1989)]. Ions are assumed to be static. We also suggest an alternative derivation of the Akhiezer Polovin solution after making the standard traveling wave Ansatz.
