AbstractWe review a family of local algorithms that permit the simulation of charged particles with purely local dynamics. Molecular dynamics formulations lead to discretizations similar to those of “particle-in-cell” methods in plasma physics. We show how to formulate a local {Monte-Carlo} algorithm in the presence of the long ranged Coulomb interaction. We compare the efficiencies of our molecular dynamics and {Monte-Carlo} codes.
