Numerical simulation of plasma motion in a magnetic field. Two-dimensional case
A model of dynamics and heating of a plasma cloud in a magnetic field is considered in a two-temperature approximation. Based on a predictor-corrector-type implicit difference scheme, spreading of a plasma cloud in an external magnetic field is numerically simulated, and the influence of this field on spread dynamics is evaluated.
