A code to solve the Vlasov-Fokker-Planck equation applied to particle transport in magnetic turbulence

Abstract:

We present a novel code which solves the Vlasov-Fokker-Planck (VFP) equation in three-dimensional magnetic turbulence using finite difference methods. The approach is distinct from particle tracking codes. The angular component of the velocity space distribution function is represented by a spherical harmonic expansion drawing on an approach pioneered by Bell, et al. (2006 Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion 48 R37) for laser-plasma interaction simulations. This method enables the accurate represent...
