This is the homepage for the Chalmers Plasma Theory group's numerical tools for simulating runaway electrons. Our research has led to the development of a number of numerical tools that can be used to study runaway electrons, mainly in tokamak plasmas but some also in other plasmas where such particles are present. The tools have been used in several scientific studies which have been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Physical Review Letters, Nuclear Fusion and Physics of Plasmas, among many others.
non-linear fokker-planck, synchrotron, self-consistent electric field, matlab
synchrotron, bremsstrahlung, image, spectrum, polarization
linear fokker-planck, avalanche, synchrotron, bremsstrahlung, partial screening, matlab
linear fokker-planck, runaway ions, matlab
Note: This code has been superseded by SOFT.
synchrotron spectrum, CODE distribution function, matlab
radial, electric field, diffusion, magnetic field perturbations
In addition to the complete codes presented above, we have also written a number of scripts which runaway electron physicists may find useful. The scripts are provided under open source licenses, free-of-charge, for your convenience.

Below you will find a list of references to scientific publications involving the tools presented on this page. The references that are underlined are considered to be key references that should be cited by any publication using the tool in question.
