PIC1D-PETSc (pic1dp) is a code simulating 1D electrostatic plasma by solving Vlasov-Poisson equation using particle-in-cell (PIC) method. PIC1D-PETSc is a reimplementation of Zhihong Lin’s PIC1D. This reimplementation demonstrates the possibility of formulating PIC method in a vector-matrix form and tests the practicability of implementing the vector-matrix PIC formulation using PETSc. License PIC1D-PETSc is released under […]

## ALCON

(Updated on May 24, 2014) ALCON has been rewritten in Python. All users are encouraged to upgrade to the new Python version and read through the README.md file in it to get familiar with it. ALCON is a code for solving ideal MHD Alfvén continua in tokamaks, i.e., Eq. (10) in [Physics of Fluids 29, […]
