The following topics are intended to be covered by the workshop:

Basic plasma edge theory

  • Magnetic boundary structure including magnetic stochasticity and sheath effects
  • Edge transport parallel and perpendicular to magnetic field, electric field effects, instabilities and turbulence
  • Neutrals and multi-ion theories, radiation
  • Plasma detachment including cold and dense buffer plasmas
  • New edge-relevant numerical and computational methods

Models of special phenomena and edge control

  • Hot spots, radiative cooling
  • L-H transition, blobs, ELMs (including control), and pedestal structure
  • Flow patterns, momentum transport, and impurity retention, biasing and shaping of targets
  • Dusty effects

Integrated plasma modelling

  • Kinetic and Monte Carlo codes, Multifluid codes
  • Effects of plasma edge/core coupling
  • Validation of edge plasma theories
