The nonlinear properties of solitary waves structure in a hot magnetized dusty plasma consisting of a negatively charged, extremely massive hot dust fluid, positively charged hot ion fluid and vortex-like distributed electrons, are reported. A modified Korteweg de Vries equation (mKdV) which admits a solitary wave solution for small but finite amplitude is derived using a reductive perturbation theory. The modifications in the amplitude and width of the solitary wave structures due to the inclusion of an external magnetic field and dust and ions temperature are investigated.
