  In modern sciences, use of high performance computing (HPC) has become a necessity to move forward in the modeling of complex systems. For large-scale instruments like accelerators, HPC permits the virtual prototyping of very onerous parts and, thus, helps to reduce development costs. The SolMaxP code (for Solving Maxwell in Plasma) has been developed to allow complex simulations of multi-species plasma coupled with electromagnetic fields, whether the electromagnetic background is or is not self-consistent with the plasma dynamics. This paper presents the main algorithm of the code and gives several examples of applications.
