Abstract
The transport properties of the weakly nonlinear (WNL) two-dimensional (2D) quasilongitudinal dust lattice mode is studied in an experimentally realized highly viscous, strongly coupled, weakly ionized plasma [V. E. Fortov, Phys. Rev. Lett. 109, 055002 (2012)10.1103/PhysRevLett.109.055002]. The WNL dynamics is found to be described by a 2D dissipative-dispersive nonlinear partial differential equation. The analytical and computational (for gas discharge plasma parameters) results predict strong viscosity induced Shilnikov homoclinic chaos, which, in turn, can cause a phase transition. © 2021 American Physical Society.
