Abstract Typical numerical simulations of dense plasmas are limited by either an inability to treat the dynamical quantum evolution of the electrons or a difficulty with strongly-coupled ions. Yet these different physics problems are individually well-treated by particular approximations. Kinetic theory molecular dynamics (KTMD) is a hybrid approach that treats electrons via kinetic theory (KT) and ions with molecular dynamics (MD). We present a derivation suitable for classical plasmas and… CONTINUE READING
