Vlasov 3D-3V simulations
|Research Area||Plasma & Particle Physics|
|Principal Investigator(s)||Prof Francesco Califano|
We plane to perform 3D-3V Vlasov-Maxwell simulations focusing on cyclotron heating of ions by anisotropic turbulent cascade of kinetic Alfven fluctuations. The project represents today a major challenge in computational plasma physics to be tackled only by means of European resources.
