Abstract
Coherent electron cooling (CeC) is an innovative concept for orders-of-magnitude increase in the luminosity of high-intensity relativistic hadron beams, which could dramatically increase the scientific productivity of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and may be the only viable approach to enable future electron-ion collider (EIC) concepts. Construction of a proof-of-concept CeC experiment at RHIC will be proposed in early June, 2010. Detailed simulations are needed to reduce technical risk. The parallel VORPAL framework is being used to simulate the electron density/velocity wakes generated by co-propagating ions in a CeC modulator section. In lower dimensionality, Vlasov and
