    • Abstract


      We study the relativistic version of the non-Abelian, longitudinal wave in quark-antiquark plasma reported earlier by Bhat et al [Phys. Rev.D39, 649 (1989)]. We have also relaxed various approximations they made in their analysis. Both the quark and antiquark dynamics are taken in our analysis. The non-linearity arising from non-Abelian field as well as from plasma are included. Hence it is an exact longitudinal mode in relativistic quark-antiquark plasma, relevant to the study of quark gluon plasma. We find that earlier results are reproduced for non-relativistic and low amplitude oscillations, but are modified for relativistic or large amplitude waves. Further more, the above results are based on just four first-order equations for gauge invariant quantities derived from gauge covariant twelve first-order equations.
