Abstract. Waves in pair plasmas have a fundamentally different dispersion due to the equal charge-to-mass ratios between negative and positive charges. In view of possible applications e.g. to electron-positron and fullerene pair plasmas, it is shown that there are no stationary large amplitude nonlinear structures in symmetric unmagnetized pair plasmas.
