Abstract

Due to the complexity of plasma dynamics and kinetics, it is often used in research model plasma through computer simulations. A new approach to the electrostatic simulation of dilute plasma, based on the Particle-in-Cell (PIC) simulation method, is explored. We discuss the distribution functions and simulation for three-component dilute plasma e-p-i (electrons, positrons, and ions) model which is homogeneous and in equilibrium. Finally, our code is successfully against with three-component dilute plasma distribution function.

Keywords: Dusty plasma, PIC simulation, maxwellian distribution, e-p-i model..
