The effects of a finite temperature ion beam traversing a plasma on the motion and characteristics of ion acoustic solitons were investigated. The soliton's width and amplitude as deduced from a… Expand

SummaryIt is shown that in order to obtain agreement with experiment for the ratio of the proton to neutron magnetic moment within the framework of the nonrelativistic quark model, the nucleon wave… Expand

Effects of the shear of the magnetic field on the stochastic acceleration of ions due to an electrostatic wave with a frequency in the lower‐hybrid range are considered. An appropriate Hamiltonian… Expand

Abstract It is shown that density gradients may affect the behaviour of ion acoustic solitons in such a way that their amplitudes, velocities and widths are proportional to fractional powers of the… Expand

The possibility of the operation of stochastic heating mechanisms of charged particles in a configuration consisting of a left‐handed circularly polarized standing electromagnetic wave and a uniform… Expand

Abstract We propose to employ a high phase-velocity plasma wave excited by beating two high frequency laser pump waves for generating currents via a stochastic driving mechanism originating from a… Expand

The nonlinear equation governing low-frequency drift waves is considered. Utilizing the linear dispersion relation for such waves, it is shown that there exists a parameter range for which the drift… Expand

Abstract An analysis of the motion of a particle in a configuration consisting of two circularly polarized electromagnetic waves and a constant magnetic field is presented. From this analysis emerges… Expand
