The claim by Choi et al. [C.-R. Choi, D.-Y. Lee, Y.-H. Kim, and N. C. Lee, Phys. Plasmas 16, 043701 (2009)] that different solitary wave types (humps, dips, and kinks) can be combined in one smooth profile is completely erroneous and contravenes generic rules for pseudopotential treatments.

    A description of ion heating by ion-acoustic turbulence in a plasma containing two ion species of different charge-to-mass ratio is presented. It is shown that, when collisions between ions of different species are ignored, only one of the ion species is heated substantially while the...

    The purpose of this work is to investigate the linear and nonlinear properties of the ion-acoustic waves (IAW), propagating obliquely to an external magnetic field in a weakly relativistic, rotating, and magnetized electron-positron-ion plasma. The Zakharov–Kuznetsov equation is derived...

    The stability of a driven coherent ion-acoustic wave (IAW) with regard to its decay into longer wavelengths is investigated. The effects of harmonic generation and wave dispersion are taken into account. The driver frequency and wave number do not necessarily satisfy the linear ion-acoustic wave...

    A Sagdeev equation is provided for the solitary kinetic Alfvén waves (SKAWs) in a low-β (me/mi≫β≫1 or mi/me>α>1), three-component (electrons, protons, and heavy ions) plasma. Then we get the numerical solution of the equation. It is found that the density humps of SKAWs...
