Abstract : The primary objective of this project is to develop an advanced algorithm for parallel supercomputers to model time-dependent magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) in all three dimensions. This will provide a valuable tool for the design and testing of plasma related technologies that are important to the Air Force and industry. These applications include nuclear weapons effects simulations, radiation production for counter proliferation, fusion for power generation, and advanced plasma thrusters for space propulsion.
