Computation of the Fields and Potentials for Particle Tracing Under the Effect of Electromagnetic Forces

Abstract
In this work we describe a model for the computation of the scalar and vector potentials associated with known electric and magnetic fields, as well as for the inverse problem. The formulation is general, but the applications motivating our study are related to the requirements for advanced modeling of charged particle dynamics in plasma-driven electromagnetic environments. The dependence of the electromagnetic field and its potentials in space and time is assumed to be separable, where the spatial part is connected to established solutions of the static problem, and the temporal part is derived from a phenomenological description based on time-series of measurements. We benchmark our model in the simple problem of a finite current-carrying conductor, for which an analytical solution is feasible, and then present numerical results from simulations of a magnetospheric disturbance in geospace.
