  • Finite element and finite volume methods.
  • Monte-Carlo modeling.
  • Implicit and explicit low-diffusive methods for transport equation resolution.
  • Fast powerful methods of large system of linear equations resolution in
    application to Poisson equation and to kinetic equations.
  • Multi-term resolution of Boltzmann equation for electrons in homogeneous and
    heterogeneous states.

  • Parallel calculations.
The distributions of electric field and electron density during a positive streamer development. Results of 2D simulation using the adaptive mesh refinement techniques. The simulated density of N2(A3Σu+) metastables in uniform discharge in pure N2 at the maximum of current. The maximum density grows up to 2.1013 cm-3 near anode (top electrode). Results of 2D fluid modeling of discharge coupled with gas flow (white arrow).
