Effect of Nonthermal Electron on Dust-acoustic Shock Waves in Dusty Plasma
Louis E. Akpabio and Akpan N. Ikot

Abstract:
A dusty plasma system containing non-thermal electron distributions, Boltzmann distributed ions and mobile charge fluctuating positive dust has been considered. The nonlinear propagation of the dust-acoustic (DA) waves in such dusty plasma has been investigated by employing the reductive perturbation method. The effect of non-thermal electrons on the height and thickness of DA shock waves are also studied. It has been found that the thickness of the Dust acoustic shock composition decreases as the non-thermal parameter increases, while the amplitude of the shock composition thickness varies with the charge fluctuating dust.
