The package PlattenC.tgz serves for the computation of the non-relativistic trajectory of an electron passing through a charged plate capacitor with square plates. The influence of the field at the rim of the capacitor has been of special interest for a lecture on the basics in electrostatic field theory by Prof. Schwarz (IEE, TU-Dresden).
The electrostatic field of the capacitor is computed by a simple boundary element method (method of moments) implemented in plattenC.cc. The dynamical interaction of the electron charge and the charge on the capacitor plates is not regarded.
The non-relativistic trajectory of the electron is computed by an explicite Runge-Kutta method implemented in Maths/tobiRungeKutta.cc.
Note, that the package was not realy intented for a release. Up to the moment it lacks any concise description. Maybe, you can gather some useful information from the Makefile. If the Makefile fails, you have bad luck.
