7. Introduction to Monte Carlo simulations of plasma transport *Online
Collisional transport phenomena of toroidal plasma are studied by computer simulations solving the drift-kinetic equation. Monte Carlo methods, which are based on probability theory, are frequently applied to the transport simulations. In this course, mathematical foundations of the Monte Carlo methods are discussed. Several computer programs will be available for practice in the methods.
