Abstract

In this paper, we propose a high order characteristics tracing scheme for the two-dimensional nonlinear incompressible Euler system in vorticity stream function formulation and the guiding center Vlasov model. Such a scheme is incorporated into a semi-Lagrangian finite difference WENO framework for simulating the aforementioned model equations. This is an extension of our earlier work on high order characteristics tracing scheme for the 1D nonlinear Vlasov–Poisson system (Qiu and Russo in J Sci Comput 71:414–434, 2017). The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is demonstrated numerically by an extensive set of test cases.
