Guides Primer on use of the SWIM IPS
This document describes the absolute basics of how to get access to the SWIM Integrated Plasma Simulator (IPS) and to run some very simple demo simulations. Two example simulations are provided – a “Hello World”, which requires no input files and does not require the plasma state, and a “model simulation” that behaves very much like a real simulation but does no physics. Both have been run on frankin at NERSC and on stix at PPPL. A step-by-step outline is provided in tables in the Appendix.
