  • Abstract

High-order interpolation algorithms for charge conservation in Particle-inCell (PIC) simulations are presented. The methods are valid for the case that a particle trajectory is a zigzag line. The second-order and third-order algorithms which can be applied to any even-orderand odd-orderare discussed in this paper, respectively. Several test simulations are performed to demonstrate their validity in two-dimensional PIC code. Compared with the simulation results of one-order, high-order algorithms have advantagesin computation precisionand enlarging the grid scales which reduces the CPU time.
