Particle In Cell (PIC) simulations have proven very efficient for the simulation of particle beams in accelerators, in particular for low intensity beams. However, for very intense beams as those needed e.g. for heavy ion fusion, their inherent noise and slow convergence when the number of particles increases might not make them the most efficient tool… CONTINUE READING
