      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Our approach to the problem of boson-fermion interaction in the conventional RFT stems from a model of super-symmetric version in 2-space and 1 time world. Basically it is stressed here that at super high energy there may not be any distinction between the bosonic and fermionic modes and may be treated on a common footing. Usual renormalization group approach for the vertex function has been adopted and the characteristic functionsβ1 andβ2 are calculated and the possibility of having stable points in the theory has been studied.

      Propagation of both low and high frequency waves in a plasma consisting of electrons, ions, positrons and charged dust particles have been theoretically studied. The characteristics of dust acoustic wave propagating through the plasma has been analysed and the dispersion relation deduced is a generalization of that obtained by previous authors. It is found that nonlinear localization of high frequency electromagnetic field in such a plasma generates magnetic field. This magnetic field is seen to depend on the temperatures of electrons and positrons and also on their equilibrium density ratio. It is suggested that the present model would be applicable to find the magnetic field generation in space plasma.

    • Solitary wave and modulational instability in a strongly coupled semiclassical relativistic dusty pair plasma with density gradient


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Using a set of fluid equations to describe the inertial dust grain component in a dense collisionless unmagnetised plasma under the influence of weakly relativistic semiclassical electrons and positrons, the propagation of dust-acoustic wave is studied in the strong coupling regime when the dust density is non-uniform.Our main aim is to analyse the role of semiclassical and relativistic environment (frequently encountered in astrophysical context) on various features of strongly coupled dusty plasma. The semiclassical environment of the electrons and positrons is assumed to be described by the Chandrasekhar equation of state. Our second aim is to see the effect of spatial variation of the dust equilibrium density, which is known to occur due to the deformation of the Debye sheath which in turn leads to polarisation force.Anew type of nonlinear Schrödinger equation with spatially varying coefficient is deduced and its modulational stability is studied in detail. In the last section, we have taken recourse to Madelung picture to deduce a variable coefficient Korteweg–de Vries equation from this new nonlinear Schrödinger equation.
