Dressed test particles, oscillation centres and pseudo-orbits

Dewar, Robert; Leykam, Daniel


A general semi-analytical method for accurate and efficient numerical calculation of the dielectrically screened ('dressed') potential around a non-relativistic test particle moving in an isotropic, collisionless, unmagnetized plasma is presented. The method requires no approximations and is illustrated using results calculated for two cases taken from the MSc thesis of the first author: test particles with velocities above and below the ion sound speed in plasmas with Maxwellian ions and warm...[Show more]
