This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract PLASMAKIN is a software library to handle physical and chemical data used in plasma physics modeling and to compute kinetics data from the reactions taking place in the gas or at the surfaces — particle generation and loss rates, photon emission rates and energy exchange rates. PLASMAKIN supports any number of chemical species and reactions, is independent of problem dimensions and can be used both in stationary and time-dependent problems. PLASMAKIN supports a large number ... Title of program: PLASMAKIN Catalogue Id: ADNH_v1_0 Nature of problem A large number of problems in plasma physics involves the consideration of several chemical species and reactions. The solution of such problems invariably requires the ability to read, classify, sort and manipulate particles and reactions and, frequently, the evaluation of source terms in chemical kinetic equations, the energy transferred by the electrons to the other particles, the gas heating due to collisions or the photon emission spectra. The handling of these data frequently represents a ... Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADNH_v1_0; PLASMAKIN; 10.1016/S0010-4655(00)00226-5
