Researchers from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology Report Recent Findings in Astrophysics Research (Linearly coupled oscillations in fully degenerate pair and warm pair-ion astrophysical plasmas)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Astrophysics Research. According to news reporting out of Lahore, Pakistan, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "In this paper we study the coexisting low frequency oscillations in strongly degenerate, magnetized, (electron-positron) pair and warm pair-ion plasma. The dispersion relations are obtained for both the cases in macroscopic quantum hydrodynamics approximation."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, "In pair-ion case, the dispersion equation shows coupling of electrostatic and (shear) electromagnetic modes under certain circumstances with important role of ion temperature. Domain of existence of such waves and their relevance to dense degenerate astrophysical plasmas is pointed out."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Results are analyzed numerically for typical systems with variation of ion concentration and ion temperature."
