Title of program: RAMSES Catalogue Id: ABUL_v1_0 Nature of problem The model used in RAMSES is intended to study the propagation of a laser pulse through a background gas or plasma. The laser pulse is composed of macroscopic photons whose trajectories are calculated. Gradients in the refractive index, which may be computed self- consistently from photoionization of the plasma, change the direction of the photons and this can lead to focusing or defocusing of the pulse. Rotational symmetry is assumed for both the laser pulse and the background. Computations with ...
