Waves in Weakly Coupled Dusty Plasmas

  • André Melzer
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 962)


Here, a first set of wave types in dusty plasmas are introduced where the order of the dust does not play a role. The discussed waves mainly include the dust-acoustic (DAW) and dust ion-acoustic wave (DIAW) which have been identified in experiments. The DAW is a wave where the dust particles are the moving species, the DIAW considers the dust as immobile, but the dust influences the wave propagation through the quasineutrality condition.
