### An axisymmetric PIC code based on isogeometric analysis⋆

Isogeometric analysis has been developed recently to use basis functions resulting from the CAO description of the computational domain for the finite element spaces. The goal of this study is to develop an axisymmetric Finite Element PIC code in which specific spline Finite Elements are used to solve the Maxwell equations and the same spline functions serve as shape function for the particles. The computational domain itself is defined using splines...
