Abstract: The Lorentz equations describe the motion of electrically charged particles in electric and magnetic fields and are used widely in plasma physics. The most popular numerical algorithm for solving them is the Boris method, a variant of the Störmer-Verlet algorithm. Boris' method is phase space volume conserving and simulated particles typically remain near the correct trajectory. However, it is only second order accurate. Therefore, in scenarios where it is not enough to know that a particle stays on the right…
