COMPUTATIONAL MODELS FOR WAVE - PARTICLE INTERACTIONS
A 2-D finite-element evolution Fokker-Planck code, BACCHUS, is presented. The originally current drive version and a more recent bounce averaged version are discussed in some detail. A 1-1/2-D quasilinear code, RUNAWAY, is also described, especially to elucidate the major difficulties arising when the wave particle interaction is included in a self-consistent way. Finally, some very preliminary information concerning a new 2-D quasi-linear code, presently under development at CRPP, is given.
