QUANTITATIVE MODELLING OF JET PLASMAS BY COMPUTATIONAL METHODS
Most of the contributions to this Discussion Meeting are concerned with important single effects and selected plasma features. However, a Tokamak plasma has also to be seen as a whole in order to put the single features in proper perspective, and in order to understand the interdependence and (usually nonlinear) interaction between them. It is one of the major tasks of the JET Theory Division to build up a mathematical model which describes consistently and quantitatively all the important aspects of the behaviour of JET plasmas with sufficient accuracy to allow extrapolation to future plasmas of Tokamak type. This paper tries to outline the basic physics assumptions from which our present plasma model has been derived and to indicate the present status of development on the way to this ambitious goal.
