Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics

A fully relativistic treatment of Bernstein waves in an electron-positron pair plasma has remained too formidable a task, owing to the very complex nature of the problem. In this paper, we perform contour integration of the dielectric-response function and numerically compute the dispersion curves for a uniform magnetized relativistic electron-positron pair plasma. The behavior of the dispersion solution for several cases with different plasma temperatures is highlighted. In particular, we find… CONTINUE READING
