A fluid-kinetic framework for self-consistent runaway-electron simulations

17 Mar 2018 Hirvijoki Eero Liu Chang Zhang Guannan del-Castillo-Negrete Diego Brennan Dylan

The problem of self-consistently coupling kinetic runaway-electron physics to the macroscopic evolution of the plasma is addressed by dividing the electron population into a bulk and a tail. A probabilistic closure is adopted to determine the coupling between the bulk and the tail populations, preserving them both as genuine, non-negative distribution functions... (read more)
