Grid-free plasma Simulation techniques
A common approach to modeling kinetic problems in plasma physics is to represent the plasma as a set of Lagrangian macro-particles which interact through long-range forces. In the well-knownExpand

Effect of electron energy distribution function on the global model for high power microwave breakdown at high pressures
Most volume-averaged global models assume a Maxwellian distribution for the electron energy distribution function (EEDF) in plasma discharges. The electrons, however, are not in the equilibrium inExpand
