Simulation and modelling using FDTD-PIC techniques requires the treatment and utilization of various electromagnetic media properties to provide high fidelity results. The various techniques available have practical limitations when employed in problems that include the modeling of ambient plasmas. The authors discuss some of the techniques and issues that must be overcome in obtaining robust simulations suitable for design and demonstration of useful physical principles.
