Abstract

We describe methods for improving the accuracy of injected particle beams by selectively enhancing the particle statistics in particle-in-cell simulations, using reduced model computations as a guide. We demonstrate convergence of key beam parameters in two dimensions, and show improved noise properties in three dimensions.
