Hi,

Ive been doing some reading into 1 dimensional plasma numerical simulations and they keep referring to solving for a "self-consistent" field. If the simulation is in one dimension with periodic boundary conditions, how would I go about solving this electric field?

Example:

dE/dx = n - ρ(x)

where: n = const = 1
ρ(x) is the charge density and I want to solve for E numerically where E is "self consistent"


Thanks for your input.
