Abstract

Using the standard approach of neoclassical theory, a set of relatively simple kinetic equations has been obtained, suited for an implementation in a numerical code to compute a related set of distribution functions. The transport coefficients are then expressed by simple integrals of these functions and they can be easily computed numerically. The code CQL3D, which uses the full collision operator and considers the realistic axisymmetric configuration of the magnetic surfaces, has been modified to solve the bounce-averaged version of these equations.
