Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


We describe a dynamical model of a one-dimensional plasma and present a simple algorithm for simulating the model on a computer. We use the algorithm to perform several numerical experiments that illustrate collective effects in plasma physics such as Debye screening and plasma oscillations.
