Abstract: The one-dimensional Vlasov-Poisson system is considered and a particle methodis developed to approximate solutions without compact support which tend to afixed background of charge as $| x | \to \infty$. Such a system of equationscan be used to model kinetic phenomena occurring in plasma physics, such as thesolar wind. The particle method is constructed, implemented, and used todetermine information regarding the time asymptotics of the electrostaticfield.
