Abstract

The higher‐order (H‐O) phase shift of dust ion‐acoustic solitons (DIASs) in a weakly relativistic plasma is examined considering the influence of both superthermality‐distributed electrons and positrons. Employing the extended Poincaré–Lighthill–Kuo method (EPLKM), the Korteweg–de Vries equations (KdVEs) and the deviation in trajectories of DIASs (i.e., phase shifts) are obtained after the collision. For obtaining H‐O phase shifts of DIASs, the fifth‐order dispersion terms are added into KdVEs. The effects of the relativistic factor for a weakly relativistic regime and the superthermality of both electrons and positrons on the H‐O phase shifts are discussed. Numerical analysis gives rise to important highlights on the excitation and the collision of DIASs in astrophysical situations such as a pulsar magnetosphere.
