D. Van Eester

Fusion Science and Technology / Volume 49 / Number 2T / February 2006 / Pages 101-107

Technical Paper / Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics - Kinetic Theory

A very short overview is given of the methods commonly used to solve the (partial) differential equations describing plasma heating and current drive. Weakness and strength of each method is briefly discussed, and references are provided where the interested reader can find in depth discussions.
