    Abstract

    Two modifications of the standard description of electrostatic interaction in a dusty plasma are emphasized. First, the Coulomb-type potential profile is not applicable at very short distances around a dust grain, due to the polarization of the charge on the grain, i.e., the image charge effect, and, second, at larger distances, the standard Debye-Hückel potential screening is modified due to nonlinear corrections in the expanded Boltzmann distribution for plasma particles.
