Numerical modeling of some problems in laser compression of pellets
Abstract
Two algorithms for numerical solution of the problem of the interaction of powerful laser radiation with matter are investigated. One algorithm is based on a Lagrangian description of the hydrodynamic processes developing in the plasma as a result of the interaction, while the other algorithm uses an Euler representation of the equations on which the mathematical model is based. Results of calculations of the interaction of radiation with a spherical target in onedimensional and twodimensional approximations are presented and discussed. The effect of anomalous heat transfer is examined.
