Abstract

The dust-ion-acoustic solitary waves (DIA SWs) in an unmagnetized dusty plasma containing non-thermal electrons, cold mobile positive ions, and stationary arbitrarily (positively and negatively) charged static dust have been theoretically studied. The reductive perturbation technique has been employed to derive the Korteweg-de Vries equation, which admits SW solutions under certain conditions. It has been also shown that the basic features (amplitude, width, speed, etc.) of DIA SWs are significantly modified by the polarity of dust and non-thermal electrons. The implications of our results in space and laboratory dusty plasma situations are briefly discussed.
