SUMMARY:Mini-course/workshop on the application of computational mathematics to plasma physics
DESCRIPTION:https://maths.anu.edu.au/news-events/events/plasma-physics \nPlasma is the “fourth state of matter”\, consisting of electrons and ions that are not bonded to each other. Plasma physics studies the collective behaviour of plasmas and their interaction with electromagnetic field and gravity\, and has a wide range of applications such as controlled fusion\, space propulsion\, astrophysics\, solar physics and material processing. Numerical solution and simulation play a key role in plasma physics\, especially for complicated geometry and highly nonlinear processes. \nComputational mathematics is deeply embedded in plasma simulations\, as the equations of interest are often high dimensional\, nonlinear and sometimes singular. This event aims to promote communications between computational mathematicians and plasma physicists\, to seek solutions to the long-standing difficulties in computational plasma physics\, and identify applications for newly developed algorithms and computational techniques. \nThis event is part of the MSI Special Year 2019 in Computational Mathematics.\n \nhttps://maths.anu.edu.au/news-events/event-series/special-year-2019-computational-mathematics\n \nJune 24-25: Mini-course\nThe mini-course is intended to familiarise the students and staffs in both computational mathematics and plasma physics with numerical methods relevant to the workshop. It is also helpful as a recap for mathematicians\, and an opportunity for physicist to understand the underlying mathematics of the relevant numerical codes. \nJune 26-27: Workshop\nIn the workshop\, plasma physicists will describe unsolved or difficult computational plasma physics problems they have encountered in their work. Mathematicians will present potential applications of their work. \nStudent Presentations: Students interested in presenting should write to Dr Zhisong Qu (zhisong.qu@anu.edu.au)\n\nFunding Support: AINSE is pleased to sponsor travel for students from interstate\, domestic and NZ flights. To request this support please send an email to Dr Zhisong Qu (zhisong.qu@anu.edu.au) or Brittany Joyce (admin.research.msi@anu.edu.au) together with a CV and a few sentence describing your current project and addressing why the workshop is helpful. \nInvited speakers \n\nProf. Frank Jenko\, Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics\, Germany\nDr. Stuart Hudson\, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory\nDr. David Pfefferle\, the University of Western Australia\nA/Prof. Lei Chang\, Sichuan University\nDr. Naoki Sato\, Kyoto University\nDr Seikichi Matsuoka\, National Institute for Fusion Science\nDr Apurv Kumar\, Australian National University\n\nOrgansing committee\n\nZhisong Qu\, Australian National University\nMatthew Hole\, Australian National University\nRobert Dewar\, Australian National University\n\nPartners & sponsors\n \nhttps://maths.anu.edu.au/news-events/events/mini-courseworkshop-application-computational-mathematics-plasma-physics \n
