"The ZPIC Educational code suite” Seminar by Ricardo F. on Youtube


EPP member Ricardo Fonseca’s invited talk for the student organization FusionEPtalks, with the title of “The ZPIC educational code suit”, is now available on Youtube:

ZPIC’s main goal is to assist the study and understanding of plasma physics using computer simulations.

This self-contained and fully relativistic electromagnetic code requires only a C compiler. The output files are written in a new file format called ZDF that can be easily read using the supplied routines in a number of languages, such as Python, Matlab, and IDL. If available, a Python environment can be used to control the simulations and visualize code output.
