Comparisons and physics basis of tokamak transport models and turbulence simulations
The predictions of gyrokinetic and gyrofluid simulations of ion-temperature-gradient (ITG) instability and turbulence in tokamak plasmas as well as some tokamak plasma thermal transport models, whichExpand

Kinetic effects of energetic particles on resistive MHD stability.
We show that the kinetic effects of energetic particles can play a crucial role in the stability of the m/n=2/1 tearing mode in tokamaks (e.g., JET, JT-60U, and DIII-D), where the fraction ofExpand

Massively Parallel Three-Dimensional Toroidal Gyrokinetic Flux-Tube Turbulence Simulation
A massively parallel three-dimensional nonlinear gyrokinetic flux-tube simulation model is discussed. This simulation is used to study turbulent heat transport in core tokamak fusion plasmas. ThisExpand

Computational modeling of fully ionized magnetized plasmas using the fluid approximation
Strongly magnetized plasmas are rich in spatial and temporal scales, making a computational approach useful for studying these systems. The most accurate model of a magnetized plasma is based on aExpand

The particle-continuum method: an algorithmic unification of particle-in-cell and continuum methods
A new numerical algorithm that encompasses both the δf particle-in-cell (PIC) method and a continuum method has been developed, which is an extension to Denavit’s [J. Comput. Phys. 9 (1972) 75]Expand
