Simulation of High-Energy-Density Plasmas Using a Novel, Fully-Implicit, Particle-in-cell/Monte-Carlo Algorithm

Justin Angus | 21-FS-048

Executive Summary

We will assess the feasibility of simulating high-energy-density plasmas using a novel kinetic algorithm that may be superior to conventional simulation methods used in existing codes. This new plasma simulation capability will lead to an improved understanding of the physics of systems that are important to national security.
