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 the L-H transition and scaling laws. Finally, the predictive capability of turbulence simulations is addressed.
