Highlights of the year
The INRIA Large Scale Initiative Action on Modelling and Numerical Simulation for Magnetic Fusion and ITER has started at the beginning of 2009 with a strong involvment of the CALVI project-team.
Nicolas Besse has defended his 'Habilitation à diriger les recherches' in November, thanks to the one year and half on leave at INRIA Nancy-Grand-Est in the CALVI project-team.
We have gained a new understanding of conservative semi-Lagrangian solvers and implemented a conservative parabolic spline method (PSM) into the 5D GYSELA code on the way to simulating efficiently core plasma turbulence on a field aligned mesh of the torus.
