Abstract

The dynamics of a hot electron cloud in the solar corona-like plasma based on the numerical solution of kinetic equations of weak turbulence theory is considered. Different finite difference schemes are examined to fit the exact analytical solutions of quasilinear equations in hydrodynamic limit (gas-dynamic solution). It is shown that the scheme suggested demonstrates correct asymptotic behavior and can be employed to solve initial value problems for an arbitrary initial electron distribution function.
