Nonlinear dynamical properties of solitary wave solutions for Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation in a multicomponent plasma


  • U.M. Abdelsalam Fayoum University



Selected:Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation, multicomponent plasma, ion-acoustic solitary waves, HB method, nonlinear partial differential equation


Using the reductive perturbation method, we have derived the Zakharov-Kuznetsov (ZK) equation for a multi-component plasma model consisting of electrons, positrons and the uid ions with positive and negative charges. The extended homogenous balance method has been applied to obtain the soliton solution in addition to many traveling wave solutions. various physical parameters have different effects on the profile of the solitary wave pulses which can show the propagation of the ion acoustic waves in laboratory plasmas and many astrophysical plasma systems as in Earth's ionosphere.
