NOn-linear Relativistic Solver for Electrons

Matlab GitHub Documentation
Available: On GitHub
Documentation: Coming soon

The NOn-linear Relativistic Solver for Electrons NORSE solves the spatially homogeneous drift-kinetic equation with a non-linear Fokker-Planck operator. NORSE includes effects such as synchrotron emission and a self-consistent electric field evolution, and is being actively developed.

Written in object-oriented Matlab, NORSE provides a user-friendly interface and is compatible with many platforms. The source code is distributed under the NORSE software license agreement and can be obtained through GitHub.


NORSE can be downloaded from GitHub, either by doing a git clone or by selecting and downloading a .zip-file containing the repo.


Official documentation for NORSE is coming soon. Until then, please consult the comments at the top of the source files.
