We study the two-scale asymptotics for a charged beam under the action of a rapidly oscillating external electric field. After proving the convergence to the correct asymptotic state, we develop a numerical method for solving the limit model involving two time scales and validate its efficiency for the simulation of long time beam evolution.
A new scheme for solving the Vlasov equation using a phase space grid is proposed. The algorithm is based on the conservation of the flux of particles, and the distribution function is reconstructed using various techniques that allow control of spurious oscillations or preservation of the positivity. Several numerical results are presented in two-and(More)
Motivated by the difficulty arising in the numerical simulation of the movement of charged particles in presence of a large external magnetic field, which adds an additional time scale and thus imposes to use a much smaller time step, we perform in this paper a homogenization of the Vlasov equation and the Vlasov-Poisson system which yield approximate(More)

Conservative methods for the numerical solution of the Vlasov equation are developed in the context of the one-dimensional splitting. In the case of constant advection, these methods and the traditional semi-Lagrangian ones are proven to be equivalent, but the conservative methods offer the possibility to add adequate filters in order to ensure the(More)
In this paper, we study high order methods for solving the time domain Maxwell equations using spline finite elements on domains defined by NURBS. Convenient basis functions for the discrete exact sequence of spaces introduced by Buffa et al [4] are exhibited which provided the same discrete structure as for classical Whitney Finite Elements. An analysis of(More)
In this work, a new discretization scheme of the gyrokinetic quasi-neutrality equation is proposed. It is based on Isogeometric Analysis; the IGA which relies on NURBS functions, seems to accommodate arbitrary coordinates and the use of complicated computation domains. Moreover, arbitrary high order degree of basis functions can be used. Here, this approach(More)
The impact of large scale flows on turbulent transport in magnetized plasmas is explored by means of various kinetic models. Zonal flows are found to lead to a non-linear upshift of turbulent transport in a 3D kinetic model for interchange turbulence. Such a transition is absent from fluid simulations, performed with the same numerical tool, which also(More)
The Integrated Tokamak Modelling Task Force (ITM-TF) is developing an infrastructure where the validation needs, as being formulated in terms of multi-device data access and detailed physics comparisons aiming for inclusion of synthetic diagnostics in the simulation chain, are key components. A device independent approach to data transport and a(More)
We describe the efficient algebraic reconstruction (EAR) method, which applies to cone-beam tomographic reconstruction problems with a circular symmetry. Three independant steps/stages are presented, which use two symmetries and a factorization of the point spread functions (PSFs), each reducing computing times and eventually storage in memory or hard(More)
