N2 - For certain classes of relativistic plasma problems, performing numerical calculations in a Lorentz boosted frame can be even more advantageous for gridded momentum-space-time (e.g., Vlasov) problems than has been demonstrated for position space-time problems and result in a potential reduction in the number of calculations needed by a factor ∼γ 6b . In this study, the Lorentz boosted frame technique was applied to the problem of warm wave-breaking limits of plasma waves with relativistic phase velocity. The numerical results are consistent with analytic conclusions. By appropriate normalization and for sufficiently warm plasma, the dynamics for the Vlasovequation in different Lorentz frames were found to be independent of γp.
