Error Estimates of Runge-Kutta Discontinuous Galerkin Methods for the Vlasov-Maxwell System


In this paper, error analysis is established for Runge-Kutta discontinuous Galerkin (RKDG) methods to solve the Vlasov-Maxwell system. This nonlinear hyperbolic system describes the time evolution of collisionless plasma particles of a single species under the self-consistent electromagnetic field, and it models many phenomena in both laboratory and… (More)
