Fusion plasma is a typical paradigm of a complex physical system which consists of multi physics and multi time/space nonlinear processes, from the macroscopic phenomena, such as, is a plasma transport, all through to the microscopic electron dynamics. In order to understand and systemize physical mechanisms in fusion plasmas, large-scale numerical simulation researches have been carried out, by utilizing the full capability of a super-computer. Based on these researches and developments, we are promoting Numerical Simulation Reactor Research Project (NSRP) in synergy with the experiment and theory, aiming at the ultimate realization of the helical numerical test reactor which will be an integrated predictive modeling for plasma behaviors in a whole machine range.
