Aligned interpolation and application to drift kinetic semi-Lagrangian simulations with oblique magnetic field in cylindrical geometry

Abstract : We introduce field aligned interpolation for Semi-Lagrangian schemes, adapting a method developed by Hariri-Ottaviani [7] to the semi-Lagrangian context. This approach is vali-dated on the constant oblique advection equation and on a 4D drift kinetic model with oblique magnetic field in cylindrical geometry. The strength of this method is that one can reduce the number of points in the longitudinal direction. More precisely, we observe that we gain a factor |n| |n+mι| (where ι is the inverse safety factor), with respect to the classical approach, for the typical function sin(mθ + nϕ).
