Common Interface for Electromagnetic Fields
ElectromagneticFields.jl provides a common interface for evaluating analytical and numerical magnetic equilibria, general electromagnetic fields and in the future also simple Maxwell solvers. For analytical equilibria, it generates Julia code providing high-level evaluation routines. Numerical equilibria are interpolated using ApproXD and can be evaluated with the very same interface as the analytical equilibria.
- simple axisymmetric tokamak equilibrium in cartesian, cylindrical and toroidal coordinates
- flexible Solov'ev equilibria with and without X-point (including ITER, NSTX and FRC configurations)
- symmetric quadratic and singular magnetic fields, symmetric Solov'ev equilibria
- Penning trap
- Arnold-Beltrami-Childress (ABC) field
- 3D perturbations (e.g., magnetic islands, electric fields)
Numerical equilibria (planned):
- projected analytic equilibria
Numerical solvers (planned):
- B-Spline, FEM and pseudo-spectral Poisson, Ampère and Faraday solvers
