One of the main goals is to enable the BIT1 and BIT3 codes for full-size kinetic modelling
of the plasma edge in the next-generation fusion devices such as ITER and DEMO.
One of the key challenges in this context is to control the interactions between
the extremely hot plasma and the surrounding material walls.
GENE is a gyrokinetic turbulence code that can quantitatively describe the
underlying physical processes. The big challenge for the worldwide fusion community
is to extend such capabilities to next step devices like ITER and DEMO.
The specific goal is to be able to predict (from scratch) the steady-state plasma
temperature and density profiles in ITER with the help of GENE simulations
PIConGPU was created to study plasma accelerators at full resolution and scale.
It was the first completely GPU accelerated particle-in-cell
plasma simulation code running on the then number one HPC.
The specific goal is a full-scale simulation of a 10 GeV-class plasma electron
accelerator suitable as a driver for a compact X-ray free electron laser.
Vlasiator is the world’s first simulation model using the 6D Vlasov equation to
model the Earth’s plasma environment in its global context.
The grand challenge of simulating the whole of near-Earth space under space storm
conditions for hours and at ion-kinetic resolutions in regions of interest requires
the advent of exascale computational capacities for several reasons.
