Electron and ion kinetic effects in the saturation of a driven ion acoustic wave
The role of ion and electron kinetic effects is investigated in the context of the nonlinear saturation of a driven ion acoustic wave(IAW) and its parametric decay into subharmonics. The simulations are carried out with a full–particle-in-cell (PIC) code, in which both ions and electrons are treated kinetically. The full-PIC results are compared with those obtained from a hybrid-PIC code (kinetic ions and Boltzmann electrons). It is found that the largest differences between the two kinds of...[Show more]
