Petascale simulation of turbulence in fusion plasmas
主 题: Petascale simulation of turbulence in fusion plasmas
The exponential growth of computer power constantly pushes forward the frontiers of scientific research. In this talk, I will discuss recent progress on particle simulations of the turbulence in fusion plasmas using newly available petascale supercomputers. Turbulent transport is arguably the most important scientific challenges in burning plasma experiments ITER, the crucial next step in the quest for fusion energy. New insights on the transport of electrons and energetic particles in burning plasmas through large scale simulations will be highlighted. Physics models and computational methods that enable the petascale simulations will be discussed.
