Early Career Researcher Presentation 4: Topological Methods for Magnetic Confinement
Gabriel Martins (California State University, Sacramento)
We explore the dynamics of a charged particle inside of a bounded region under the influence of a magnetic field. We discuss how the shape of the region might make it easier (or harder) for us to trap the particle to its interior using a magnetic field. The system we will discuss provides a simplified mathematical model for the interior of fusion reactor devices and particle accelerators.
