Progress toward efficient direct solution of the nonlinear inelastic Boltzmann equation
George Wilkie, Chalmers University of Technology
Recent advances in applied mathematics (Gamba and Rjasanow, JCP 2018) make direct solution of the Boltzmann equation particularly accessible. A newly-developed implementation has been optimized, parallelized, and rigorously benchmarked. Features include general-cross-section large-angle, inelastic, and/or self-collisions. The fully conservative
discrete collision operators are pre-computed and stored on an online database, making time advancement remarkably efficient on local workstations. I will also discuss possible applications for this tool including discharges, reentry blackout, tokamak divertors, runaway electrons, carbon sequestration, and more.
