Research is focused on the design, implementation, verification, validation, and application of novel numerical algorithms aimed at numerical modeling of various types of plasma discharges and on analysis of the resulting data.  A particular emphasis is put on the multi-dimensional kinetic modeling of high-density plasmas operated at low pressures, which can be found in capacitively coupled, microwave-driven, dc- or rf-driven magnetron reac-tors, or Hall thrusters used in space propulsion. To make the corresponding simulations tractable, high-performance technologies based on the utilization of graphics-processing units (GPU), message-passing interface (MPI) or openMP are used. The simulation data obtained are analyzed and employed in the development of theo-retical understanding of the phenomena taking place in such plasmas.

Keywords: low temperature plasmas, magnetized plasmas, plasma modeling, algorithm development, high perfor-mance computing
