Comparative study of forward and backward test-kinetic simulation approaches

11 Oct 2016 Voitcu Gabriel Echim Marius Marchand Richard

In this paper we perform a comparative study of the forward and backward Liouville mapping applied to the modeling of ring-shaped and non-gyrotropic velocity distribution functions of particles injected in a sheared electromagnetic field. The test-kinetic method is used to compute the velocity distribution function in various areas of a proton cloud moving in the vicinity of a region with a sharp transition of the magnetic field and a non-uniform electric field...
