  • Abstract

A multi-hierarchy simulation model aiming magnetic reconnection studies is developed and improved in which macroscopic and microscopic physics are computed consistently and simultaneously. Macroscopic physics is solved by magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) algorithm, while microscopic dynamics is expressed by particle-in-cell (PIC) algorithm. The multi-hierarchy model relies on the domain decomposition method, and macro- and micro-hierarchies are interlocked smoothly by hand-shake scheme. As examination, plasma flow injection is simulated in the multi-hierarchy model. It is observed that plasmas flow from a macro-hierarchy to a micro-hierarchy across the magnetic field smoothly and continuously.
