I joined the ANAG with a background in computational plasma and accelerator physics. To that end, I am working on my PhD thesis, "A fourth-order adaptive mesh refinement solver for Maxwell's Equations," under Phil Colella. The code documented in my thesis is based on the fourth-order hyperbolic advance developed by Peter McCorquodale and, for Gauss' Law of Electricity, on the fourth-order projection operators developed by Hans Johansen and Qinghai Zhang. To my knowledge, this will be the first adaptive, cell-centered, fourth-order Maxwell solver. We ultimately hope to model the Maxwell-Vlasov system for plasma physics applications using this algorithm, but extending my code to include the Vlasov Equation is beyond the scope of my dissertation.
