Professor Dawson's pioneering work in computer simulations of space and astrophysical plasmas

Résumé : This paper is a non-exhaustive review of John Dawson's research work in the domain of space plasma simulation. Its includes some of his most significant contributions brought on physics of auroral phenomena, on magnetospheric physics as well as solar physics and astrophysics. In many opportunities, Professor Dawson has developped a pioneering work in terms of development of new global MHD and particle codes, with innovative applications to the physics of space plasma phenomena. Finally, the interest of Professor Dawson in the new architectures of highly parallel super-computers will be presented and illustrated by simulation results obtained recently.
