  • An approximate factorization procedure for solving nine-point elliptic difference equations: Application for a fast 2-D relativistic Fokker-Planck solver


A full implicit numerical procedure based on the use of a nine-point difference operator is presented to solve the 2-dimensional (2-D) relativistic Fokker-Planck equation for the current drive problem and synergetic effects between the lower hybrid and the electron cyclotron waves in tokamaks.
