Model Comparison in Plasma Energy confinement scaling
Energy confinement data of large fusion experiments have been analyzed in terms of dimensionless form free scaling functions. Several possible physical scenarios lead to a different models with a certain degree of freedom. These are used to set up the confinement function as a linear combination of dimensionless power law terms. Then one has to solve the problem, given a particular plasma model which is the optimum number of terms in the expansion, and which model is most likely in the light of the data.
