Title: Final Technical Report for DOE/FES Award DE-SC0016363

Abstract

The goals of this project were to investigate magnetic field evolution during 3D magnetic reconnection; begin development of an open source Python package for plasma research and education; advise students on research projects related to magnetic reconnection; and organize a conference session on diversity, equity, and inclusion in plasma physics. The principal investigator advanced an analytical theory to describe the ideal and non-ideal motion of the magnetic field lines that connect two magnetic null points; led development of the PlasmaPy package through version 0.2.0; directly advised two students; and is co-organizing a town hall on diversity, equity, and inclusion at a major plasma physics conference.
