Double layers and collapsible waves in plasmas expected in interplanetary space

  • G. C. Das

The propagation of ion-acoustic waves by the augmentation of Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation are studied in a plasma in relation to that existing in the interplanetary space. We precisely pointed out the causes of occuring the double layers as well as collapsing of the solitary waves in the plasma dynamics.
