Characteristics of magnetohydrodynamic waves propagating in a magnetized relativistic degenerate plasma
Keywords:Magnetohydrodynamic waves, Relativistic degenerate plasma, Alfven waves, Magnetosonic waves, QuantamMagnetohydrodynamic model
A linear analysis was performed to investigate the basic properties of waves propagating in different directions in magnetized quantam plasma consisting of classical warm ions and relativistic degenerate electrons. We employ a quantum magnetohydrodynamic approach considering quantum corrections, spin effects in addition to relativity, and a polytropic index to obtain a generalized dispersion relation of the regarded plasma system. The considered system supports three types of magnetohydrodynamic waves: Alfven, fast, and slow magnetosonic waves. The obtained modified Alfven and magnetosonic dispersion relations are affected by the obliqueness factor, spin magnetization, and plasma beta .The fast and slow modes were also altered owing to the Bohm potential and relativistic degenerate pressure impacts. Examination of the influences of these parameters revealed a significant modification of the phase velocity features of the magnetohydrodynamic waves. The results obtained may be applicable to relativistic magnetized quantum plasmas in astrophysical environments.
