PTSG code descriptions
We have developed the following interactive, real-time, many particle
plasmacodes for desktop computing, complete with graphics:
We have developed the following plasma device, bounded plasma, computer
experiments PIC with Monte Carlo collisions, also for desktop computing
(PIC-MCC), complete with graphics.
SPAM: A single particle mover, in specified E and B fields;
runs on a PC.
ES1, XES1: An electrostatic 1 dimensional, periodic many-particle
(PIC) code. Can be magnetized. Described in detail in Plasma Physics
via Computer Simulation, by Birdsall and Langdon, McGraw-Hill 1985
and Adam Hilger 1991 (which has the ES1 disk with it). Input files for
projects in Chapter 5. Runs on PC's, or on X-11 windows equipped computers.
XEM1: An electromagnetic 1 dimensional code, periodic or bounded.
See chapters 6 and 7 in the book above.
The preferred distribution of our codes is via anonymous ftp. The files
are located at distribution.
IBC: Interactive-beam-circuit code; a PIC traveling wave tube, with
PDP1, PDC1, PDS1 (planar, cylindrical and spherical bounding electrodes):
1d3v, bounded, magnetized or not, including electron and ion collisions
with neutrals, external circuit, voltage or current sources. X versions
of these programs are also available.
XPDP2: Planar in x, periodic in y, 2d3v, or fully bounded in x,y.
R-theta and R-Z versions in development. Not yet released: pdw2 workshop
in Innsbruck Austria 15-18 Feb 1995. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
