Collisional Effect On Magnetosonic Solitons In A Dusty Plasma Slab

LE Akpabio, AN Ikot, AB Udoimuk, SE Etuk


An analytical investigation of collisional effect on magnetosonic solitons in a dusty plasma slab is presented. We have derived and presented solutions of nonlinear magetohydrodynamic equations for a warm dusty magnetoplasma. It is observed that, our work could be considered a general case for magnetosonic solutions in a dusty plasma slab. While the neglection of the collisional effect reduces our results to exactly what is obtained by Marklund et al, 2007.

Keywords: Magnetosonic Solitons, dusty plasma.
