We present millimeter-scale numerical studies we have performed about laser-plasma interaction. We have developed for that purpose a specific software, which we call (Héra) and that we use for studying filamentation, Brillouin and Raman instabilities. We assume the paraxial wave propagation and bitemperature quasi-neutral fluid approximations. A brief description of the main models within , as well as some computation results, will be presented.
