Electrostatic Solitary Waves in Non-Maxwellian Space Plasmas: On the Role of Suprathermal Particles

February 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Space plasmas are generally characterized by the presence of highly energetic particles, which are accelerated via various mechanisms. These suprathermal particles populate the upper zone in the velocity space, leading to a long-tailed (non-thermal) distribution and a power law dependence for high velocities, that is effectively modeled by a kappa-type (non-Maxwell-Boltzmann) distribution. Electrostatic solitary waves …
