goals

This course discusses a number of key concepts in the numerical simulation of plasmas and gas discharges. The theories behind fluid and kinetic plasma modelling will be briefly discussed. The participants have developed and modified various C++ and MATLAB simulation programs to familiarise themselves with the numerical and computational aspects of the subject matter.

content

In order to understand and improve plasma sources, numerical simulation has become an invaluable addition to experiments in the past decades. At present, time-dependent three-dimensional codes in which all relevant plasma features are dealt with self-consistently are starting to appear.

requirements

none

recommended knowledge

Basic knowledge of C/C++ or MATLAB and plasma physics.

miscellaneous

Due to the present corona situation the course will be postponed and will take place after February 12th 2021.
