Title: New variables for gyrokinetic electromagnetic simulations

A new approach to electromagnetic gyrokinetic simulations based on modified gyrokinetic theory is described. The method is validated using a particle-in-cell code. The Toroidal Alfvén Eigenmode at low perpendicular mode numbers, the so-called “magnetohydrodynamical limit,” has been successfully simulated using this method.
