Papers by Greg Hammett and collaborators on gyrofluid and gyrokinetic simulations of tokamak plasma turbulence and the development of theory-based transport models (plus other topics in recent years...)

The gyrofluid/gyrokinetic papers are written primarily by the core group of people at PPPL, Univ. Maryland, IFS, GA, and LLNL who are involved in flux-tube gyrofluid simulations of tokamak plasma turbulence. There are others who have written papers applying gyro-Landau fluid techniques to TAE and DTEM instabilities in tokamaks (at ORNL), rotation stabilization of resistive wall instabilities (Lausanne), and several non-magnetic-fusion applications...
