Solitons preserve their shapes and velocities after a collision with another soliton. Ion-acoustic solitons can also evolve into double layers due to the reflection and transmission of plasma particles in the solitons themselves. In contrast to solitons which do not contain a net potential drop across the soliton, double layers are nonlinear structures containing net potential drops. -L. Chian and Y. Kamide correct polarity will add up to produce large electric potential drops along a magnetic field line.
