Our older, far less well kept up codes are:
Codes that require xgrafix
Codes with own version of xgrafix
Python/Matlab based codes
|Following codes require system-wide installed xgrafix (usually in /usr/local/lib). Before compiling codes, please download, compile and install xgrafix.||Following codes do not work with current version of xgrafix and have version of xgrafix packed into tarball.||Following codes require working Python environment (python 2.7/iython) or MatLab.|
Many authors, using our codes, have made acknowledgments to PTSG and sent us copies of their reports, journal articles, letters, and MS, Ph.D. theses. We appreciate both.
Since 1991, we have listed the publications brought to our attention using our codes XPDP1, XPDC1, XPDS1, XPDP2, and XOOPIC (by us and others). The total that we are aware of now exceeds 300, including over 60 by us. We are delighted to have been helpful to these authors. We are even more delighted to learn of their excellent and ingenious applications and modifications of our codes (go to the List of the publications).Return
We have given workshops for users of our plasma device codes. These codes are particle-in-cell (PIC) codes with Monte Carlo collision (MCC) models in 1D and 2D. Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates are modeled, in both electrostatic and electromagnetic regimes. The models include flexible boundary conditions, external driving circuits, and user-customizable diagnostics. The PTSG has been at the forefront of algorithm development for almost 50 years, and continues to develop new models for physics, computer science, and applied mathematics.
Inquiries are welcome (address to Prof. John P. Verboncoeur).
