The formation and propagation characteristics of small-amplitude magnetoacoustic dark/grey solitons are investigated in a semi relativistic degenerate magnetoplasma whose constituents are electrons and singly ionized positive ions. For this purpose, the electrons are assumed to follow the degeneracy pressure law through the Chandrasekhar equation of state, while the inertial cold ions are taken as non-degenerate and magnetized. By solving the one-fluid quantum magnetohydrodynamic (QMHD) model with the aid of a reductive perturbation technique, a nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation is derived for weakly nonlinear envelope magnetoacoustic solitons. The NLS equation admits the existence of stable excitations, e.g. dark and grey solitons for which the condition
holds. Numerical results reveal that the variation of plasma number density, magnetic field strength, relativistic parameter
and the quantum parameter
significantly modify the profiles of the envelope magnetoacoustic solitons. The present results are important to understanding of the nonlinear dynamics of magnetoacoustic solitons in astrophysical dense magnetoplasmas (viz., white dwarfs, magnetars, neutron stars, etc.), where the relativistic degeneracy effects play a vital role in collective interactions.
