Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 91)


Particle and energy transport in magnetically confined plasmas is described by large systems of coupled nonlinear and quasilinear partial integro-differential equations. Examples are given and the numerical methods for their solution are outlined. It is pointed out that the rigorous mathematical basis of these methods is very small.
