## Kinetic-j : A computational kernel for solving the linearized Vlasov equation applied to calculations of the kinetic, configuration space plasma current for time harmonic wave electric fields

We present the Kinetic-j code, a computational kernel for evaluating the linearized Vlasov equation withapplication to calculating the kinetic plasma response (current) to an applied time harmonic wave electricfield. This code addresses the need for a configuration space evaluation of the plasma current to enablekinetic full-wave solvers for waves in hot plasmas to move beyond the limitations of the traditional Fourierspectral methods. We benchmark the kernel via comparison with the standard k-space forms of the hotplasma conductivity tensor.
