The code incorporates all physics effects that can be expected from a state of the art gyro-kinetic simulation code in the local limit: kinetic electrons, electromagnetic effects, collisions, full general geometry with a coupling to a MHD equilibrium code, and E × B shearing. In addition the physics of plasma rotation has been i...
