    • Abstract


      The differences between the soliton solutions of the K-dV equation for a homogeneous, collisionless plasma, consisting of cold ions and isothermal electrons arising due to the two different sets of stretched co-ordinates have been discussed. In particular, the differences between the amplitudes and the widths of the solitons and their variations with the soliton velocity have been indicated. Further, the experimental implications of these differences and also of the two sets of stretched co-ordinates have been discussed.
