- On 5th, January 2023, Prof. Hiroaki Nakamura was awarded as ASIASIM Fellowship for his great contribution to development of modeling and simulation by ASIASIM Federation, which was established by JSST (Japan Society for Simulation Technology), KSS (Korea Society for Simulation), CSF (China Simulation Federation), SSAGsg(Society for Simulation and Gaming of Singapore) and MSS(Malaysian Simulation Society) in 2011.[2023.1.16]
- Graduate student Kento Ishiguro won the JSST 2022 Student Presentation Award in the 41th JSST Annual International Conference on Simulation Technology for his study on "Evaluation tolerance of DNA damaged by tritium beta decay using MD simulation". [2022.12.14]
- A paper by Assoc. Prof. M. Nunami, S. Toda, M. Nakata, and H. Sugama [Phys. Plasmas29, 102505 (2022)] has been chosen as the Editor's Picks in "Physics of Plasmas" [M. Nunami, S. Toda, M. Nakata, and H. Sugama, Phys. Plasmas 29, 102505 (2022).][2022.10.12].
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.
