1. The numerical code "Kinetex" is designed for calculation of the distribution function of the electron beam precipitating in the converging magnetic loop. It is based on the Coulomb collisions + Return current + Magnetic field model. The numerical code "Kinetex" is designed for calculation of the distribution function of the electron beam precipitating in the converging magnetic loop. It is based on the solution of the Boltzmann kinetic equation for the fast particles in "thermal" plasma. It is assumed that there are two channels of the energy losses: Coulomb collisions and Ohmic losses in the self-induced electric field. In addition, converging magnetic field causes particle pitch-angular deflection.
