Numerical Modeling of Laser Target Compression in an External Magnetic Field

  • V. V. Kuzenov
  • S. V. Ryzhkov


A mathematical model for the compression process of a cylindrically symmetric thermonuclear target is presented. A numerical method of an increased accuracy order is considered, which is used to calculate the basic physical processes that occur in target plasma exposed to an external magnetic field.
