TRANSP is a large comprehensive time-dependent tokamak transport data
analysis code developed at PPPL. At this time, there is no comprehensive
single description of the models in TRANSP, however references for most of
the basic models are listed below.
Documentation of how to control these models, their interactions,
and a variety of diagnostic simulations is available in:
http://w3.pppl.gov/~pshare/help/transp.htm
Instructions on how to become a PPPL TRANSP user, with access to PPPL
TRANSP output data, is available in:

This model (ANTIC) has been extended to include multiple ion and neutral
species (including Helium), interaction with fast ions, recombination,
volume neutral sources from beam deposition, and to use updated cross-
sections.

Various other portions of TRANSP have been discussed in posters at the
APS-DPP meeting (e.g. the handling of the compression terms due to variation
of the magnetic geometry in time). Copies of these posters are available
from Douglas McCune at PPPL (phone 609-243-2731).
