Finite element modelling of ion convection by electrostatic forces

Abstract

Different formulations of the problem of a cloud of ions convected by electrostatic forces are presented. Their influence on the ionic charge conservation is discussed. It is shown that a mixed electrostatic formulation is the most accurate for the studied example.
