Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

The self-consistent dusty-plasma response found in the kinetic theory [V. N. Tsytovich and U. de Angelis, Phys. Plasmas 6, 1093 (1999)] is generalized to include collisions of all species with neutrals, a situation often important in the experiments, and used to derive a new dispersion relation for low-frequency waves in dusty plasmas. An estimate of the differences with previous results is given for the particular case of dust-acoustic waves without the effects of collisions with neutrals: the present theory reproduces the result of Rao, Shukla, and Yu [Planet. Space Sci. 38, 543 (1990)] only for low dust density and small wavelengths, but strong deviations occur at larger wavelengths and dust densities.
