AB - These notes summarize a series of works related to the numericalapproximation of plasma fluid problems. We construct so-called'Asymptotic-Preserving' schemes which are valid for a large range of values(from very small to order unity) of the dimensionless parameters that appear inplasma fluid models. Specifically, we are interested in two parameters, thescaled Debye length which quantifies how close to quasi-neutrality the plasmais, and the scaled cyclotron period, which is inversely proportional to themagnetic field strength. We will largely focus on the ideas, in order to enablethe reader to apply these concepts to other situations.
