a Concentration profile showing plasma escaping into vacuum. Other than the concentration gradient, the plasma has an initial drift velocity. The initial concentration is shown in green, the analytical solution (after a given interval of time) is shown in red and the numerical solution (after the same interval of time) is shown in blue. b Velocity profile showing plasma escaping into vacuum.
