Theory of Fast Electron Transport for Fast Ignition
by A.P.L. Robinson, et al.
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 78
Here we review progress in the theory and numerical simulation of fast electron transport in the context of Fast Ignition. Important aspects of the basic plasma physics, descriptions of the numerical methods used, a review of ignition-scale simulations, and a survey of schemes for controlling the propagation of fast electrons are included.
