FOKN: A relativistic FokkerPlanck code with large angle scattering and radiation losses
Abstract
FOKN is a computer code which employs a relativistic FokkerPlanck algorithm to evolve the distribution functions of the various mutually interacting components of a multispecies plasma forward in time, with the optional addition of high angle, large energy and momentum transfer interactions between the various charged species of the plasma. As a computational expediency, the latter processes are handled by transfer matrices which are generated separately by another code, RNUX; so that, once specific transfer matrices are generated, they can be used over and over by FOKN provided the group structures are compatible.
