A discontinuous Galerkin method for a two dimensional resistive MHD model

Participants : Ashish Bhole, Boniface Nkonga, Praveen Chandrashekar.

We consider the numerical approximation of two dimensional incompressible magnetohydrodynamics equations with vorticity and current as the dynamical variables. We construct a discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method for the MHD model written in symmetric form. The numerical flux is based on a Riemann solver and the scalar fluxes of velocity and magnetic field are computed using a Galerkin method. The performance of the method is demonstrated on some standard instability problems relevant to magnetically confined fusion reactors.
