Some things related to my work
The Role of Computation in Plasma Physics
in which we discuss how computer simulation helps Plasma Physics in particular
Particle-in-Cell Plasma Simulation
in which we describe the procedure followed in the PIC method of investigating plasmas numerically
Relaxation methods for solving partial differential
wherein we discuss how this important class of equations which describes nearly all natural processes can be solved numerically
A review of Roger Penrose's book "The Emperor's New Mind" from the point of view of a physicist. In my opinion, the reviews which appeared in various magazines when it was first published failed to address many of the physics related issues which were so brilliantly set forth in the book.
Plasma Physics, Parallel Programming, and more Linux programs.
