PROPAGATION OF ION ACOUSTIC WAVES IN A MAGNETIZED QUANTUM PLASMA IN THE PRESENCE OF EXCHANGE-CORRELATION EFFECTS
The nonlinear propagation of ion acoustic solitary waves are studied in a magnetized quantum plasma consisting of cold inertia ions and inertialless quantum electrons and positrons, including exchange-correlation effects., A Zakharov-Kuznetsov equation is derived by using the reductive perturbation method. The effects of quantum plasma parameters on the propagation characteristics of the ion acoustic solitary waves have been investigated. It is found that the phase velocity, amplitude and width of the solitary waves are significantly affected by the presence of exchange-correlation potentials of electron and positron. Only solitary wave width effected by both quantum diffraction and magnetic field strength. The width of the solitary waves increases with the increase of both the quantum diffraction and magnetic field strength. The increase in the positron concentration causes to diminish both the solitary waves amplitude and width. The current results may be useful to understand the properties of ion acoustic waves propagating in dense space plasma environments where the quantum effects are expected to dominate.
