We propose in this short note a method enabling to write in a systematic way a set of refined equations for average ion models in which correlations between populations are taken into account, starting from a microscopic model for the evolution of the electronic configuration probabilities. Numerical simulations illustrating the improvements with respect to standard average ion models are presented at the end of the paper.

This article aims at giving a simplified presentation of a new adaptive semi-Lagrangian scheme for solving the (1+1)-dimensional Vlasov-Poisson system, which was developed in 2005 with Michel Mehrenberger and first described in (Campos Pinto and Mehrenberger, 2007). The main steps of the analysis are also given, which yield the first error estimate for an adaptive scheme in the context of the Vlasov equation. This article focuses on a key feature of our method, which is a new algorithm to transport...

We study a new Hermite-type interpolating operator arising in a semi-Lagrangian scheme for solving the Vlasov equation in the D phase space. Numerical results on uniform and adaptive grids are shown and compared with the biquadratic Lagrange interpolation introduced in (Campos Pinto and Mehrenberger, 2004) in the case of a rotating Gaussian.

This is a report on project initiated with Anne Nouri [3], presently in progress, with the collaboration of Nicolas Besse [2] ([2] is mainly the material of this report) . It concerns a version of the Vlasov equation where the self interacting potential is replaced by a Dirac mass. Emphasis is put on the relations between the linearized version, the full non linear problem and also on natural connections with several other equations of mathematical physic.

Isogeometric analysis has been developed recently to use basis functions resulting from the CAO description of the computational domain for the finite element spaces. The goal of this study is to develop an axisymmetric Finite Element PIC code in which specific spline Finite Elements are used to solve the Maxwell equations and the same spline functions serve as shape function for the particles. The computational domain itself is defined using splines...

We study the initial value problem for the drift-diffusion model arising in semiconductor device simulation and plasma physics. We show that the corresponding stationary problem in the whole space ℝn admits a unique stationary solution in a general situation. Moreover, it is proved that when n ≥ 3, a unique solution to the initial value problem exists globally in time and converges to the corresponding stationary solution as time tends to infinity, provided that the amplitude of the stationary solution...

The modelling and the numerical resolution of the electrical charging of a spacecraft in interaction with the Earth magnetosphere is considered. It involves the Vlasov-Poisson system, endowed with non standard boundary conditions. We discuss the pros and cons of several numerical methods for solving this system, using as benchmark a simple 1D model which exhibits the main difficulties of the original models.

In this paper, we prove the convergence of the current defined from the Schrödinger-Poisson system with the presence of a strong magnetic field toward a dissipative solution of the Euler equations.

We consider a strongly magnetized plasma described by a Vlasov-Poisson system with a large external magnetic field. The finite Larmor radius scaling allows to describe its behaviour at very fine scales. We give a new interpretation of the asymptotic equations obtained by Frénod and Sonnendrücker [SIAM J. Math. Anal. 32 (2001) 1227–1247] when the intensity of the magnetic field goes to infinity. We introduce the so-called polarization drift and show that its contribution is not negligible in the...
