PICSL: Particle in Cell and Semi-Lagrangian schemes for two species plasma simulations

Participants : Michel Mehrenberger [correspondent] , Sever Hirstoaga, Joackim Bernier, Yann Barsamian.

We have worked at CEMRACS 2016 on an algorithm that handles both the Particle in Cell method and the Semi-Lagrangian method in the context of a 2D×2D to handle the different scales associated with the ions and the electrons in Vlasov-Poisson simulation. Using PIC methods for the electrons allows to use easily specific numerical methods for fast dynamic. Numerical results are in accordance with the dispersion relation.
