Non-linear hydromagnetic waves in two-electron temperature plasma

  • M. L. Mittal

The non-linear hydromagnetic waves for two-electron temperature plasma are shown to be governed by a Korteweg — de Vries — Burgers equation. Collisional effects have also been taken into account. Due to the magnetic field the amplitude of the solitary wave decreases while the width of the soliton and the speed of the shock wave increase.
