A Difference Scheme for Plasma Wakefield Simulation / A. A. Konik and E. V. Chizhonkov. // Vestnik Moskovskogo Universiteta. Seriya 1. Matematika. Mekhanika. 2016. № 1. P. 44-48 [Moscow Univ. Math. Bulletin. Vol. 72, N 2, 2017. P. 27-30].
The paper presents a scheme implemented by the finite difference method for solving a system of nonlinear partial differential equations describing a three-dimensional axially symmetric plasma wakefield. The results of wakefield dynamics calculation until breaking are also presented.
Key words: finite difference method, plasma wakefield, nonlinear partial differential equations.
