Title: Numerical study of a Vlasov equation for systems with interacting particles

We solve numerically the Vlasov equation for the self-gravitating sheet model. We used the method introduced by Cheng and Knorr [Comput Phys 22, 330-351 (1976)]. We discuss the quasi-stationary state for some thermodynamical observables, specifically the kinetic energy, whose trend is depicted for early evolution.
