Methods in Computational Physics, Volume 16: Controlled Fusion considers the full variety of computer models needed for the simulation of realistic fusion devices. These computer models include time-dependent magnetohydrodynamics, plasma transport in a magnetic field, MHD and guiding-center equilibria, MHD stability of confinement systems, Vlasov and particle models, and multispecies Fokker-Planck codes.
This volume is divided into 11 chapters. The first three chapters discuss various aspects of the numerical solution of the equations of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD). The subsequent chapters present the more realistic models, including the thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity. Other chapters describe two-dimensional codes with varies choice of coordinate systems, such as fixed Eulerian grid, Lagrangian descriptions, and the use of magnetic flux surfaces as coordinate surfaces. The discussion then shifts to models on the inclusion of neutrals and impurities, as well as the use of empirical transport coefficients. A chapter surveys the development of time-dependent codes to support the design and operation of major CTR experiment. The final chapters explore the electromagnetic codes in the nonradiative limit (Darwin model) where the equations are nonrelativistic and displacement currents are neglected.
This book is an invaluable source for geoscientists, physicists, and mathematicians.
