Abstract : The application of the associative processor STARAN to plasma Simulation problems is demonstrated. The algorithm tested is based on PIC (particle-in-cell) method discussed in the paper by Lewis, Sykes and Wesson. The program is written in the associative processor programming languages APPLE and MAPPLE. (Author)
