Theoretical Plasma Physics
The project “Theoretical Plasma Physics” is devoted to first-principle based model developments
The objective is to develop computer models for numerical description of magnetically confined fusion plasmas that are based on fundamental physical principles.
The project combines the corresponding efforts of the three divisions Tokamak Theory, Stellarator Theory and "Numerical Methods in Plasma Physics" as well as the Junior Research Group "Hybrid gyrokinetic computations for weakly magnetised plasmas in nature and the laboratory".
It is a major partner in the Max Planck-Princeton Center for Plasma Physics, founded in 2012.
