Abstract : Research performed in collaboration with George Mason University, the University of California at Berkeley, and Berkeley Research Associates in order to develop a freely-available, re-usable, object-oriented PIC code in C++. The code should have a state-of-the-art graphical user interface (GUI) and physics capabilities such as a fully relativistic and electromagnetic field solver, variable geometries (cylindrical, cartesian, etc.), a multi-conductor package, extensive diagnostics, etc. The code will have extensive documentation.
