Paper Abstract

Two sets of computer results are discussed. By means of a 2D Maxwell-Vlasov coupling code, the generation of MeV-range electrons and ions is addressed as well as the subsequent X- ray production and neutron production provided by post- processing the fast particle distribution. With a 3D MHD- fluid target-fast beam coupling code, the propagation of electrons in dense matter is discussed, with emphasis on the target heating.
