2015 Computer Physics Communications  
A current correction is applied for the charge conserving current deposit to correctly account for the EM calculation in hybrid Yee-FFT solver.  ...  In this solver, the EM fields are solved in k space by performing an FFT in one direction, while using finite difference operators in the other direction(s).  ...  Summary We proposed to use a hybrid Yee-FFT and a rigorous charge conserving current deposit for solving Maxwell's equations in order to eliminate the numerical Cerenkov instability in PIC codes when modeling  ...

An O(N) Maxwell solver with improved numerical dispersion properties [article]

Yingchao Lu, Chengkun Huang, Patrick Kilian, Fan Guo, Hui Li, Edison Liang
2019 arXiv   pre-print
A Maxwell solver derived from finite element method with O(N) computing cost is developed to improve the numerical dispersion properties in relativistic particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations.  ...  This Maxwell solver constrains the Numerical Cherenkov instability (NCI) for the ultra-relativistic drifting pair plasma in x direction to large wave vectors for two dimensional grid.  ...  Controlling the numerical cerenkov in- stability in PIC simulations using a customized finite differ- ence maxwell solver and a local FFT based current correction.  ...

A particle-in-cell method for the simulation of plasmas based on an unconditionally stable field solver

Eric M. Wolf, Matthew Causley, Andrew Christlieb, Matthew Bettencourt
2016 Journal of Computational Physics  
We propose a new particle-in-cell (PIC) method for the simulation of plasmas based on a recently developed, unconditionally stable solver for the wave equation.  ...  This method is not subject to a CFL restriction, limiting the ratio of the time step size to the spatial step size, typical of explicit methods, while maintaining computational cost and code complexity  ...  discrete form of Gauss' law through their field solvers and charge and current weighting schemes will suffer severe numerical errors related to charge conservation [9] .  ...
