Mathematical model and software complex for computer simulation of field emission electron sources
Abstract
The software complex developed in MATLAB allows modelling of function of diode and triode structures based on field emission electron sources with complex submicron geometry, their voltampere characteristics, calculating distribution of electric field for educational and research needs. The goal of this paper is describing the physicalmathematical model, calculation methods and algorithms the software complex is based on, demonstrating the principles of its function and showing results of its work. For getting to know the complex, a demo version with graphical user interface is presented.

A mathematical model for dynamic simulation of anaerobic digestion of complex substrates: Focusing on ammonia inhibition
A mathematical model for anaerobic degradation of complex organic material, such as manure, has been developed. The model includes an enzymatic hydrolytic step and four bacterial steps and involves 12 chemical compounds. The model focuses on ammonia inhibition and includes a detailed description of pH and temperature characteristics in order to accurately simulate free ammonia concentration. Free ammonia and acetate constitute the primary modulating factors in the model. The model has been applied for the simulation of digestion of cattle manure in continuously stirred tank reactors (CSTRs), and results compare favorably with experimental data. 
Effect of magnetic field in electronimpact ion sources and simulation of electron trajectories
Effect of magnetic field has been studied for the electronimpact ion sources coupled with a quadrupole mass spectrometer. Computer simulation of electron trajectories showed better collimation and more helical rotations under stronger magnetic field, suggesting enhanced ionization efficiency. However, the magnetic field showed different effect on the mass spectrometer signals for different types of ion sources. For the cross beam ion source, where ion beam direction is perpendicular to the magnetic field, the mass spectrometer signals decreased when the magnetic field strength was higher than 20 G. For the axial ion source, where both the electron beam and ion beammore » 
Saturation of a floating potential of an electron emitting electrode with increased electron emission: A onedimensional kinetic model and particleincell simulation
A bounded plasma system is studied by a onedimensional kinetic model and particleincell computer simulation using the XPDP1 code. Three particle species are injected into the system from a planar source, which are the singly charged positive ions and the cool and the hot electrons. All the particle species are injected with halfMaxwellian velocity distributions with different temperatures. From the collector, the emitted electrons are injected, also with a halfMaxwellian velocity distribution, but with a much lower temperature than the cool electrons. As electron emission from the collector is increased, the floating potential of the collector increases also until themore »
