Abstract

Obliquely propagating ion-acoustic nonlinear periodic waves in a magnetized plasma consisting of warm adiabatic ions and two Maxwellian electron species are studied. Using the reductive perturbation method, the Korteweg–de Vries (KdV) equation is derived and its cnoidal wave solution is discussed. It is found that as the amplitude of the cnoidal wave increases, so does its frequency. The effects of variations in the density and temperature ratios of the two electron species, the ion temperature, the angle of obliqueness and the magnetization on the characteristics of the cnoidal wave are discussed in detail. When the coefficient of the nonlinear term of the KdV equation, a1, vanishes, the modified Korteweg–de Vries equation is derived, and its periodic-wave solutions are discussed in detail. In the limiting case these periodic-wave solutions reduce to soliton or double-layer solutions.
