Description

Due to the exotic shape of the longitudinal phase space of electron bunches in
free-electron lasers, it is challenging to efficiently simulate their dynamics
using Vlasov methods. We present SeLaV1D, a semi-lagrangian Vlasov solver which
addresses this challenge by employing tree-based domain decomposition, and its
application to the analysis of the microbunching instability in free-electron
laser injectors.
