Towards a full self-consistent numerical simulation of tokamak plasma turbulence
This paper is a review of recent advances in numerical simulations of turbulence in fusion plasmas. Recent improvements of fluid and particle simulations are described. The results are compared with challenging issues such as L-H transition and scaling laws. Finally, the predictive capability of turbulence simulations is addressed.
