Particle-in-cell codes are among the major candidates to yield a satisfactory description of the detail of kinetic effects, such as resonant wave-particle interaction, relevant in determining the transport mechanisms in magnetically confined plasmas. A significant improvement on the simulation performance of such codes can be expected from distributing the particle population among several parallel processors.
