# Fluid simulations of plasma turbulence at ion scales: comparison with Vlasov-Maxwell simulations

@article{Perrone2018FluidSO, title={Fluid simulations of plasma turbulence at ion scales: comparison with Vlasov-Maxwell simulations}, author={Denise Perrone and Thierry Passot and D. Laveder and Francesco Valentini and P. L. Sulem and Ioannis Zouganelis and Pierluigi Veltri and Sergio Servidio}, journal={arXiv: Plasma Physics}, year={2018} }

Comparisons are presented between a hybrid Vlasov-Maxwell (HVM) simulation of turbulence in a collisionless plasma and fluid reductions. These include Hall-magnetohydrodynamics (HMHD) and Landau fluid (LF) or FLR-Landau fluid (FLR-LF) models that retain pressure anisotropy and low-frequency kinetic effects such as Landau damping and, for the last model, finite Larmor radius (FLR) corrections. The problem is considered in two space dimensions, when initial conditions involve moderate-amplitude…
