Variational Integrators in Plasma Physics (PhD Thesis)

Profile image of Michael Kraus

Variational integrators are a special kind of geometric discretisation methods applicable to any system of differential equations that obeys a Lagrangian formulation. In this thesis, variational integrators are developed for several important models of plasma physics: guiding centre dynamics (particle dynamics), the Vlasov-Poisson system (kinetic theory), and ideal magnetohydrodynamics (plasma fluid theory). Special attention is given to physical conservation laws like conservation of energy and momentum. Most systems in plasma physics do not possess a Lagrangian formulation to which the variational integrator methodology is directly applicable. Therefore the theory is extended towards nonvariational differential equations by linking it to Ibragimov's theory of integrating factors and adjoint equations. It allows us to find a Lagrangian for all ordinary and partial differential equations and systems thereof. Consequently, the applicability of variational integrators is extended to a much larger family of systems than envisaged in the original theory. This approach allows for the application of Noether's theorem to analyse the conservation properties of the system, both at the continuous and the discrete level. In numerical examples, the conservation properties of the derived schemes are analysed. In case of guiding centre dynamics, momentum in the toroidal direction of a tokamak is preserved exactly. The particle energy exhibits an error, but the absolute value of this error stays constant during the entire simulation. Therefore numerical dissipation is absent. In case of the kinetic theory, the total number of particles, total linear momentum and total energy are preserved exactly, i.e., up to machine accuracy. In case of magnetohydrodynamics, the total energy, cross helicity and the divergence of the magnetic field are preserved up to machine precision.

Reduced magnetohydrodynamics is a simplified set of magnetohydrodynamics equations with applications to both fusion and astrophysical plasmas, possessing a noncanonical Hamiltonian structure and consequently a number of conserved functionals. We propose a new discretisation strategy for these equations based on a discrete variational principle applied to a formal Lagrangian. The resulting integrator preserves important quantities like the total energy, magnetic helicity and cross helicity exactly (up to machine precision). As the integrator is free of numerical resistivity, spurious reconnection along current sheets is absent in the ideal case. If effects of electron inertia are added, reconnection of magnetic field lines is allowed, although the resulting model still possesses a noncanonical Hamiltonian structure. After reviewing the conservation laws of the model equations, the adopted variational principle with the related conservation laws are described both at the continuous and discrete level. We verify the favourable properties of the variational integrator in particular with respect to the preservation of the invariants of the models under consideration and compare with results from the literature. In the case of reduced magnetohydrodynamics with electron inertia effects, simulations of magnetic reconnection are performed and compared also with those of a pseudo-spectral code.

We consider whether implicit simulation techniques canbe extended in time and space scales to magnetohydrodynamics without any change but the addition of collisions. Our goal is to couple fluid and kinetic models together for application to multi-scale problems. Within a simulation framework, transition from one model to the other would occur not by a change of algorithm, but by a change of parameters. This would greatly simplify the coupling. Along the way, we have found new ways to impose consistent boundary conditions for the field solver that result in charge and energy conservation, and establish that numerically-generated stochastic heating is the problem to overcome. For an MHD-like problem, collisions are clearly necessary to reduce the stochastic heating. Without collisions, the heating rate is unacceptable. With collisions, the heating rate is significantly reduced.

Title: a geometric theory of waves and its applications to plasma physics.

Abstract: Waves play an essential role in many aspects of plasma science, such as plasma manipulation and diagnostics. Due to the complexity of the governing equations, approximate models are often necessary to describe wave dynamics. In this dissertation, waves are treated as geometric objects of a variational theory rather than formal solutions of specific PDEs. This approach simplifies calculations, highlights the underlying wave symmetries, and leads to improved modeling of wave dynamics. This thesis presents two breakthroughs that were obtained in the general theory of waves. The first main contribution is an extension and reformulation of geometrical optics (GO) as a first-principle Lagrangian theory that correctly describes polarization effects, such as polarization precession and the polarization-driven bending of ray trajectories, which appear as leading-order corrections to GO. The theory was applied to several systems of interest, such as relativistic spin-1/2 particles and radio-frequency waves in magnetized plasma. The second main contribution of this thesis is the development of a phase-space method to study basic properties of nonlinear wave--wave interactions. Specifically, I show that waves propagating in modulated media, both classical and quantum, can experience time-averaged refraction caused by effective ponderomotive forces on wave rays. This phenomenon is analogous to the ponderomotive effect encountered by charged particles in high-frequency electromagnetic fields. I also show that phase-space methods can be useful to study problems in the field of wave turbulence, such as the nonlinear interaction of high-frequency waves with large-scale structures. Overall, the results obtained can serve as a basis for future studies on more complex nonlinear wave--wave interactions, such as modulational instabilities in general wave ensembles or wave turbulence.

About this book

This thesis makes two important contributions to plasma physics. The first is the extension of the seminal theoretical works of Spitzer and Braginskii, which describe the basics of particle interactions in plasma, to relativistic systems. Relativistic plasmas have long been studied in high-energy astrophysics and are becoming increasingly attainable in the laboratory. The second is the design of a new class of photon–photon collider, which is the first capable of detecting the Breit–Wheeler process. Though it offers the simplest way for light to be converted into matter, the process has never been detected in the 80 years since its theoretical prediction. The experimental scheme proposed here exploits the radiation used in inertial confinement fusion experiments and could in principle be implemented in one of several current-generation facilities.

Alpha particles with energies on the order of megaelectronvolts will be the main source of plasma heating in future magnetic confinement fusion reactors. Instead of heating fuel ions, most of the energy of alpha particles is transferred to electrons in the plasma. Furthermore, alpha particles can also excite Alfvénic instabilities, which were previously considered to be detrimental to the performance of the fusion device. Here we report improved thermal ion confinement in the presence of megaelectronvolts ions and strong fast ion-driven Alfvénic instabilities in recent experiments on the Joint European Torus. Detailed transport analysis of these experiments reveals turbulence suppression through a complex multi-scale mechanism that generates large-scale zonal flows. This holds promise for more economical operation of fusion reactors with dominant alpha particle heating and ultimately cheaper fusion electricity.

    The Bragg condition related the wavelength of the electromagnetic radiation, λ to the distance, d between planes in the crystalline array: λ = 2d sinθ. For example, for a wave at 3 THz, λ = 100 μm, and with θ = π/2, the Bragg condition requires a d = 50 μm. Lattice spacings on this order is typical for a dust crystal.
