The following animations were made using the Picard iteration-based integrator in the beam physics code repository.

Animation 1 - Four charged particles orbiting a massive oppositely charged particle.  One orbiting particle has double the charge of the others.

Animation 2 - Evenly spaced particles with the same charge on collision course.  Particles are repulsed after near collision.
