Title: Accurate modeling of the hose instability in plasma wakefield accelerators

Hosing is a major challenge for the applicability of plasma wakefield accelerators and its modeling is therefore of fundamental importance to facilitate future stable and compact plasma-based particle accelerators. In this contribution, we present a new model for the evolution of the plasma centroid, which enables the accurate investigation of the hose instability in the nonlinear blowout regime. Lastly, it paves the road for more precise and comprehensive studies of hosing, e.g., with drive and witness beams, which were not possible with previous models.
