-Non-linear wave propagation and hyperbolic systems: Theoretical
and numerical studies of non-linear wave propagation in continuous
media modelled by means of partial differential equations of
hyperbolic type. For instance, I have recently studied the
propagation of classical and "non-classical" shock waves in real
- Numerical modelling and simulation of thermal and fusion plasmas.
Few years ago, I was mainly concerned with numerical modelling of
thermal plasmas (especially inductively coupled plasma torches).
More recently, I have been concerned - in the framework of the ITER
project - with the numerical simulation of fusion plasmas (tokamak
plasmas) in which high anisotropic diffusion phenomena take
I personally develop the numerical codes that I use in my research
