The nonlinear effects caused by intense electromagnetic waves in an electron-positron-ion plasma were studied. The interaction was governed by the electromagnetic wave equation including the relativistic electron and positron mass variations, the density changes associated with the acousticlike waves and an equation for the latter in the presence of the radiation pressure. The governing nonlinear equations were analyzed to show the possibility of a novel modulational instability as well as the formation of light bullets and solitons.

Abstract

The nonlinear effects caused by intense electromagnetic waves in an electron-positron-ion plasma were studied. The interaction was governed by the electromagnetic wave equation including the relativistic electron and positron mass variations, the density changes associated with the acousticlike waves and an equation for the latter in the presence of the radiation pressure. The governing nonlinear equations were analyzed to show the possibility of a novel modulational instability as well as the formation of light bullets and solitons.
