Abstract [en]

The equations of motion of a single particle subject to an arbitrary electric and a static magnetic field form a Poisson system. We present a second-order time integration method which preserves well the Poisson structure and compare it to commonly used algorithms, such as the Boris scheme. All the methods are represented in a general framework of splitting methods. We use the so-called phi functions, which give efficient ways for both analyzing and implementing the algorithms. Numerical experiments show an excellent long term stability for the method considered.
