The report is intended primarily as a users manual for a series of five computer codes for the numberical simulation of one-dimentsional collisionless plasma phenomena. These codes solve, in effect, the one-dimensional Vlassov equation by following the trajectories of simulation particles under the influence of electromagnetic fields. Thus, the particle codes describes are particularly useful for investigating micro-instabilities, such as those encountered in laser-plasma interactions, collisionless shocks, and plasma confinement. A discussion of numerical techniques is includes. The report also includes a listing of the CDC FORTRAN 4 codes, including machine language subroutines for CDC 6000 and 7000 machines. The microfilm routines used to obtain phase space plots and energy graphs employ the system routine PLOTQ, designed specifically for the CDC 280 mirofilmer. Author
