    • Abstract

       

      Nonlinear electromagnetic wave propagation through cold collisionless plasma in (2+1) dimensions is studied using the nonlinear reductive perturbation method. It is shown that to the lowest order of perturbation, the system of equations can be reduced to modified Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation.
