Verification of long wavelength electromagnetic modes with a gyrokineticfluid hybrid model in the XGC code
Abstract
As an alternative option to kinetic electrons, the gyrokinetic totalf particleincell (PIC) code XGC1 has been extended to the MHD/fluid type electromagnetic regime by combining gyrokinetic PIC ions with massless driftfluid electrons. Here, two representative long wavelength modes, shear Alfven waves and resistive tearing modes, are verified in cylindrical and toroidal magnetic field geometries.
