Abstract : The author presents analytic solutions for asymmetric double layers which satisfy the time stationary VlasovPoisson system and which require the doublevaluedness of Sagdeev potential as a function of physical potential: it is pointed out that any distribution function having an analytic density representation as a polynomial power series of potential can never satisfy the asymmetric double layer boundary conditions. Considering KdV like equation, it is found that there is some relationship between the speed of asymmetric double layer and the degree of asymmetry. (Author)
