High order finite element particle-in-cell solvers on unstructured grids (HOUPIC)
Participants : Loula Fezoui, Stéphane Lanteri, Muriel Sesques [ CEA/CESTA, Bordeaux ] , Eric Sonnendrücker [ IRMA and CALVI project-team, INRIA Nancy - Grand Est ] .
The project-team is a partner of the HOUPIC project which is funded by ANR in the framework of the Calcul Intensif et Simulations program (this project has started in January 2007 for a duration of 3.5 years). The main objective of this project is to develop and compare Finite Element Time Domain (FETD) solvers based on high order Hcurl conforming elements and high order Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) finite elements and investigate their coupling to a PIC method.
