Electron-acoustic solitary waves in the presence of a suprathermal electron component


The nonlinear dynamics of electron-acoustic localized structures in a collisionless and unmagnetized plasma consisting of “cool” inertial electrons, “hot” electrons having a kappa distribution, and stationary ions is studied. The inertialess hot electron distribution thus has a longtailed suprathermal (non-Maxwellian) form. A dispersion relation is derived… (More)
