FIG. 1.

Particle trajectories integrated explicitly () for the field put into the linear antisymmetric discretization gauge of the point . A trajectory that remains close to (0,0) is numerically stable (a), while further away (b), it is unstable because the local antisymmetric discretization gauge at (0,0) is not a good approximation to the required gauge at the particle position.

FIG. 2.

Numerically integrated particle trajectories in the field : (a) Using and (b) using . The kinetic energy, is plotted in (c), with the trajectory of (a) in red, and that of (b) in black. The time-step h is chosen so that the particle rotates by approximately 1/10 radians per timestep and the trajectory is integrated for 1000 timesteps.
