We study the influence of the factor of electron-ion collisions on the solution of the Cauchy problem in the one-dimensional relativistic model of cold plasma and show that, depending on their intensity and initial data, two scenarios are possible: either the solution remains smooth and stabilizes to a stationary state, or during a finite time the oscillations blowup. In contrast to the nonrelativistic model, when exact conditions can be obtained separating the two behaviors, in a much more… Expand

The Interplay of Regularizing Factors in the Model of Upper Hybrid Oscillations of Cold Plasma
A one-dimensional nonlinear model of the so-called upper hybrid oscillations in a magnetoactive plasma is investigated taking into account electron-ion collisions. It is known that both the presenceExpand


Nonlinear oscillations in a cold dissipative plasma
Recently, it has been shown that when viscosity and resistivity is included in the cold plasma model, nonlinear plasma oscillations exhibit a new nonlinear effect in the form of splitting of densityExpand
Analytically solvable model of nonlinear oscillations in a cold but viscous and resistive plasma.
The solution includes all known exact solutions for an ideal cold plasma and a large class of new ones for a more realistic plasma, and a new nonlinear effect is found of splitting of the largest density maximum, with a saddle point between the peaks. Expand
