Solitons and Weakly Nonlinear Waves in Plasmas

Hans Pécseli

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Theoretical descriptions of solitons and weakly nonlinear waves propagating in plasma media are reviewed, with particular attention to the Korteweg-de Vries (KDV) equation and the Nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLS). The modifications of these basic equations due to the effects of resonant particles and external magnetic fields are discussed.
