The Implicit Hyprid/PIC Code AMTHEM.

Description

Recent inventions in pulse power switching, fast laser-driven thermonuclear ignition, and short pulse radiography have demanded a dramatic increase in the capabilities of plasma simulation tools. Multifluid, multi-component, fluid and kinetic models are needed for plasmas spanning thousands of Debye lengths and thousands of plasma periods. Such plasmas manifest both dense and tenuous regions, including or excluding magnetic fields and collisional resistivity. The problems of interest can dwell in a transition regime with limits traditionally treated by resistive MHD and and/or collisional particle-in-cell (PIC) methods. The ANTHEM implicit hybrid simulation model is under development to meet these challenges. This presentation ... continued below

The problems of interest can dwell in a transition regime with limits traditionally treated by resistive MHD and and/or collisional particle-in-cell (PIC) methods. The ANTHEM implicit hybrid simulation model is under development to meet these challenges. This presentation will outline its past and current features, and review results typical of short-pulse laser applications.
