In this talk, I will present ColDICE[1, 2], a publicly available parallel numerical solver designed to solve the Vlasov-Poisson equations in the cold case limit. The method is based on the representation of the phase-space sheet as a conforming, self-adaptive simplicial tessellation whose vertices follow the Lagrangian equations of motion. In this presentation, I will mainly focus on describing the underlying algorithm and its practical implementation, as well as showing a few practical examples demonstrating its capabilities.
