Turbulent transport in magnetic fusion plasmas plays a key role in the energy confinement time. It involves purely kinetic phenomena and thus needs a full Vlasov-Maxwell model. However due to the presence of a very large external magnetic field the Vlasov equation needs be reduced to a so called gyrokinetic model. This model will be presented and then we will focus on the different approaches used for its numerical simulation: purely Eulerian techniques in the GENE code, Particle-In-Cell in the EUTERPE code and semi-Lagragian in the GYSELA code.
