The recent developments in mesh-free plasma modeling
using parallel tree codes are described, covering the algorithmic and performance issues and how to apply this technique to multidimensional electrostatic plasma problems. Examples of the simulations of the ion acceleration by high-intensity lasers, heating, and the dynamics of the nanostructured targets, as well as more recent applications of this technique to the simulations
of edge plasmas in tokamaks and mesh-free magnetoinductive
models, are given.
