The delta-f approach is extended for simulating the transport time-scale evolution of near-Maxwellian distributions in collisional plasmas. This involves simultaneously advancing weighted marker particles for representing the intrinsically kinetic component delta-f, and fluid equations for the parameters of the shifted Maxwellian background f(subSM). The issue of increasing numerical noise in a collisional delta-f algorithm, due to marker particle weight spreading, is addressed in detail, and a… CONTINUE READING
