Abstract [en]

Numerical solution of a fully nonlinear one dimensional in space and three dimensional in velocity space electron kinetic equation is presented. Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method used for the nonlinear Landau-Fokker-Planck (LFP) collision operator is combined with Particle-in-Cell (PiC) simulations. An assumption of a self-consistent ambipolar electric field is used. The illustrative simulation results for the relaxation of the initial temperature perturbation are compared with the antecedent analytical and numerical results.

Abstract [en]

We consider a system of N classical particles, interacting via a smooth, short-range potential, in a weak-coupling regime. This means that N tends to infinity when the interaction is suitably rescaled. The j-particle marginals, which obey to the usual BBGKY hierarchy, are decomposed into two contributions: one small but strongly oscillating, the other hopefully smooth. Eliminating the first, we arrive to establish the dynamical problem in term of a new hierarchy (for the smooth part) involving a memory term. We show that the first order correction to the free flow converges, as N →∞, to the corresponding term associated to the Landau equation. We also show the related propagation of chaos.

Abstract [en]

A general approach to Monte Carlo methods for Coulomb collisions is proposed. Its key idea is an approximation of Landau-Fokker-Planck equations by Boltzmann equations of quasi-Maxwellian kind. It means that the total collision frequency for the corresponding Boltzmann equation does not depend on the velocities. This allows to make the simulation process very simple since the collision pairs can be chosen arbitrarily, without restriction. It is shown that this approach includes the well-known methods of Takizuka and Abe (1977) [12] and Nanbu (1997) as particular cases, and generalizes the approach of Bobylev and Nanbu (2000). The numerical scheme of this paper is simpler than the schemes by Takizuka and Abe [12] and by Nanbu. We derive it for the general case of multicomponent plasmas and show some numerical tests for the two-component (electrons and ions) case. An optimal choice of parameters for speeding up the computations is also discussed. It is also proved that the order of approximation is not worse than O(root epsilon), where epsilon is a parameter of approximation being equivalent to the time step Delta t in earlier methods. A similar estimate is obtained for the methods of Takizuka and Abe and Nanbu. (C) 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

The hydrodynamics at the Burnett level is discussed in detail. First we explain the shortest way to derive the classical Burnett equations from the Boltzmann equation. Then we sketch all the computations needed for details of these equations. It is well known that the classical Burnett equations are ill-posed. We therefore explain how to make a regularization of these equations and derive the well-posed generalized Burnett equations (GBEs). We discuss briefly an optimal choice of free parameters in GBEs and consider a specific version of these equations. It is remarkable that this version of GBEs is even simpler than the original Burnett equations, it contains only third derivatives of density. Finally we prove a linear stability for GBEs. We also present some numerical results on the sound propagation based on GBEs and compare them with the Navier-Stokes results and experimental data.

Abstract [en]

The new direct simulation method of Monte-Carlo type (DSMC) for Coulomb collisions in the case of two component plasma is considered.  A brief literature review and preliminary information concerning the problem are given. Further the idea that lies in the basis of the method is discussed and its scheme is provided. The illustrative numerical simulation of the initial distribution relaxation for one and two sorts of particles in 3D case in the velocity space is performed. Simulation results are compared with the numerical results based on the completely conservative finite difference schemes for the Landau-Fokker-Planck equation. Estimation of calculation accuracy obtained from numerical results is given.

Abstract [en]

It is shown that a broad class of generalized Dirichlet series (including the polylogarithm, related to the Riemann zeta-function) can be presented as a classof solutions of the Fourier transformed spatially homogeneous linear Boltzmannequation with a special Maxwell-type collision kernel. The result is based on anexplicit integral representationof solutions to the Cauchy problem for the Boltzmann equation. Possibleapplications to the theory of Dirichlet seriesare briefly discussed.

Abstract [en]

In this paper we discuss a general problem related to spurious conservation laws for discrete velocity models (DVMs) of the classical (elastic) Boltzmann equation. Models with spurious conservation laws appeared already at the early stage of the development of discrete kinetic theory. The well-known theorem of uniqueness of collision invariants for the continuous velocity space very often does not hold for a set of discrete velocities. In our previous works we considered the general problem of the construction of normal DVMs, we found a general algorithm for the construction of all such models and presented a complete classification of normal DVMs with small number n of velocities (n<11). Even if we have a general method to classify all normal discrete kinetic models (and in particular DVMs), the existing method is relatively slow and the amount of possible cases to check increases rapidly with n. We remarked that many of our normal DVMs appear to be axially symmetric. In this paper we consider a connection between symmetric transformations and normal DVMs. We first develop a new inductive method that, starting with a given normal DVM, leads by symmetric extensions to a new normal DVM. This method can produce very fast many new normal DVMs with larger number of velocities, showing that the class of normal DVMs contains a large subclass of symmetric models. We finally apply the method to several normal DVMs and construct new models that are not only normal, but also symmetric relatively to more and more axes. We hope that such symmetric velocitysets can be used for DSMC methods of solving Boltzmann equation.
