The pair correlation functions and the mean squared displacements of charged dust particles were studied experimentally for quasi–two-dimensional (2D) nonideal systems. The experiments were carried out in a plasma of a capacitive radio-frequency (RF-) discharge in argon for monolayers of monodispersed (melamine formaldehyde) spheres. A comparison with the existing theoretical and numerical data is presented.
