A fully nonlinear Sagdeev pseudopotential approach is used to study the existence domain of fast ion-acoustic solitons
in a plasma composed of cold and warm adiabatic positive ion species and Boltzmann electrons. It is shown that, perhaps surprisingly, for appropriate values of the ion mass ratio and the electron-warm ion temperature ratio, there is a range in cold-to-warm ion density ratio over which a stopband in soliton speed exists. Solitons do not propagate in the stopband, although they can occur for both higher and lower speeds.
