Exact analytic solutions for nonlinear waves in cold plasmas

By G. (George) Rowlands, G. Brodin and Lennart Stenflo


Large amplitude plasma oscillations are studied in a cold electron plasma. Using Lagrangian variables, a new class of exact analytical solutions is found. It turns out that the electric field amplitude is limited either by wave breaking or by the condition that the electron density always has to stay positive. The range of possible amplitudes is determined analytically
