We propose a new semi-Lagrangian Vlasov–Poisson solver. It employs metric elements to follow locally the flow and its deformation, allowing one to find quickly and accurately the initial phase-space position
of any test particle
, by expanding at second order the geometry of the motion in the vicinity of the closest element. It is thus possible to reconstruct accurately the phase-space distribution function at any time
by proper interpolation of initial conditions, following Liouville theorem. When distortion of the elements of metric becomes too large, it is necessary to create new initial conditions along with isotropic elements and repeat the procedure again until next resampling. To speed up the process, interpolation of the phase-space distribution is performed at second order during the transport phase, while third-order splines are used at the moments of remapping. We also show how to compute accurately the region of influence of each element of metric with the proper percolation scheme. The algorithm is tested here in the framework of one-dimensional gravitational dynamics but is implemented in such a way that it can be extended easily to four- or six-dimensional phase space. It can also be trivially generalised to plasmas.
