ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

In most helical systems, electron-internal transport barriers (e-ITBs) are observed in electron cyclotron heated (ECH) plasmas with high heating power density. In the stellarator TJ-II, e-ITBs are easily achievable by positioning a low-order rational surface close to the plasma core because this increases the density range in which the e-ITB can form. Experiments with different low-order rationals show a dependence of the threshold density and barrier quality on the order of the rational (3/2, 4/2, 5/3 . . .). In addition, quasi-coherent modes are frequently observed before and/or after the e-ITB phenomenon at the radial location of the transport barrier foot. Such modes vanish as the barrier is fully developed.
