Abstract:

The author presents analytic solutions for asymmetric double layers which satisfy the time stationary Vlasov-Poisson system and which require the double-valuedness of Sagdeev potential as a function of physical potential it is pointed out that any distribution function having an analytic density representation as a polynomial power series of potential can never satisfy the asymmetric double layer boundary conditions. Considering K-dV like equation, it is found that there is some relationship between the speed of asymmetric double layer and the degree of asymmetry. Author
