Theory and Modelling
The Group of Theory and Modelling focuses on theoretical and numerical studies of magnetic confinement fusion (MCF) plasmas, in support of the European fusion programme. The main areas of expertise are topics of critical importance for the success of the fusion roadmap, and of ITER in particular: wave-particle interactions, plasma momentum and intrinsic rotation, MHD activity, tokamak equilibrium, edge turbulence and interpretation of diagnostics data, particularly reflectometry.
