Simulation is indispensable to the field of advanced
acceleration. It has been used both for prediction and for
developing understanding. This will be shown by example. Students
should bring a laptop for running simulations, and they will
receive a copy of the plasma simulation code, VSim. They will
also receive notes from the simulation course taught at
the University of Colorado. Within the hour, students will be
doing their first plasma acceleration simulation. Other examples
will be covered as time permits. Finally, students will learn what
not to do, including selecting too large a time step or an
insufficiently resolved grid, and see what goes wrong
in the simulation.
