Multistability and chaotic scenario of arbitrary amplitude ion-acoustic waves in a quantum plasma consisting of negative ions, positive ions and electrons are investigated. The normalized basic equations are transformed to a four dimensional conservative dynamical system by introducing a travelling wave variable. Stability of the fixed points for the corresponding linearized system is briefly examined. Chaotic and quasi-periodic features of the arbitrary amplitude ion-acoustic waves are discussed using effective tools, viz. phase orientations, time series graph and graphs of Lyapunov exponents. Multistability phenomena is established with the help of phase spaces, largest Lyapunov exponents and cross-section of basins of attraction. The chaotic phenomena is further verified by 0−1 test. Results of this study can be applied in understanding dynamical phenomena of arbitrary amplitude ion-acoustic waves in quantum pair-ion plasmas.
