A lattice Boltzmann algorithm to study the three-dimensional electrostatic-turbulence dynamics in thermonuclear plasmas is derived. The ion continuity, momentum, and pressure equations are reproduced with the electrons being described by the adiabatic response. The numerical stability is discussed. Applications to the study of two-dimensional turbulence are presented. © 1996 The American Physical Society.
