We present a numerical scheme for the integration of the Vlasov–Maxwell system of equations for a non-relativistic plasma, in the hybrid approximation, where the Vlasov equation is solved for the ion distribution function and the electrons are treated as a fluid. In the Ohm equation for the electric field, effects of electron inertia have been retained, in(More)
The generation of a coherent ion flow due to the injection in a plasma of a purely electrostatic wave of finite amplitude, propagating at right angle with the ambient uniform magnetic field, is investigated making use of a kinetic code which solves the fully nonlinear Vlasov equations for electrons and ions, coupled with the Maxwell equations, in one(More)

La simulation N-Corps d'un plasma consiste à calculer l'interaction coulombienne mutuelle entre N particules chargées. Nous avons adapté un algorithme N-Corps de type " code en arbre " , utilisé avec succès dans le cas gravitationnel, pour la simulation de plasmas. Pour l'instant, nous avons trouvé deux champs d'applications pour lesquels cette technique(More)
