Abstract

The document contains the slides to a presentation held at the 6th International Workshop on Strong Microwaves in Plasmas. It covers the following topics:
Towards a 5D non-linear gyrokinetic code for Ion Temperature Gradient turbulence in tokamaks (electrostatic -> electromagnetic)
- Global
- Total distribution function
- Semi-Langrangian scheme

Conclusions
- Resillience: the system relaxes towards marginal stability
- The gradient of guiding center density plays a prominent role in the Reynolds� stress
- Key physics: shift of the mode
- Temperature gradient - low turbulent transport - well aligned with curvature of ZF
-> physics of shearing NOT dominant here
