Paper of Cesare Tronci published in the Journal of Plasma Physics

The paper “Koopman wavefunctions and Clebsch variables in Vlasov–Maxwell kinetic theory“, co-authored by Cesare Tronci and Ilon Joseph (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), has been published in the Journal of Plasma Physics. A link to the published paper is here, and a link to the final form arxiv version is here. Motivated by recent discussions on the possible role of quantum computation in plasma simulations, here, the authors present different approaches to Koopman’s Hilbert-space formulation of classical mechanics in the context of Vlasov–Maxwell kinetic theory.
