Newton direct and Inverse Computation for Equilibrium
Keywords: 2D - C++ - Scientific computing - Finite element modelling - Plasma physics - Optimal control - Optimization - Identification
Functional Description: The NICE code is under development. Its goal is to gather in a single modern, modular and evolutionary C++ code, the different numerical methods and algorithms from VACTH, EQUINOX and CEDRES++ which share many common features. It also integrates new methods as for example the possibility to use the Stokes model for equilibrium reconstruction using polarimetry measurements.
