This paper describes the numerical modeling of rarefied plasma flows under conditions where continuum assumptions fail. We numerically solve the Boltz-mann equation for rarefied, non-continuum plasma flows, making use of well known approaches as PIC (Particle in Cell) and as DSMC (Direct Simulation Monte Carlo). The mathematical and numerical modeling is(More)
A particle method is being developed jointly by IRS Pulsed Power and Microwave Technology, Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe in der Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft) in order to model rarefied plasma flows under conditions where continuum assumptions fail. The Boltzmann equation for rarefied, non-continuum plasma flows is solved numerically, making use of particle methods(More)
