Abstract:

A program on numerical plasma simulation was undertaken. The following codes were developed One- and two-dimensional models using finite-sized particles and including only electrostatic interactions between particles One, one and a half two velocities and one position, two, and two and a half three velocities and two positions codes were developed using finite-sized particles, electrostatic particle interactions and a fixed magnetic field A three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic fluid model was developed. Extensive checks on the accuracy and reliability of the codes were made. The codes were applied to a number of problems in plasma turbulence and nonlinear behavior. Brief summaries of the work are attached. They are taken from the Annual Report of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.
