Abstract: In this paper, we consider the quasineutral limit of the Euler-Poisson equation for cold ions when the Debye length tends to zero. In the cold ion case the Euler-Poisson equation is pressureless and hence fails to be Friedrich symmetrizable, excluding the application of the PsDO energy estimates method of Grenier to obtain uniform estimates independent of $ \varepsilon $. To overcome this difficulty, we use $ \varepsilon $-weighted norms which combine energy estimates in different levels with weights depending on $ \varepsilon $. Finally, that the quasineutral regimes are the compressible Euler equations is proven for well prepared initial data. As a natural extension, we also obtain the zero temperature limit of the Euler-Poisson equation.
