Numerical Solution of the Non Homogeneous Fokker-Planck-Landau Equation
In this note we describe a novel approach to the numerical solution of the Fokker-Planck-Landau equation in the non-homogeneous case. The method couples, through a time splitting algorithm, a finite volume scheme for the transport with a fast spectral solver for the efficient solution of the collision operator.
