A description is given of a computer code for simulation of electron oscillations in a magnetized plasma in a cylindrical waveguide. The one-dimensional particle-in-cell method with the reverse linear interpolation of charge density is
used. The program has options for treating nonlinear processer in a plasma with periodical and reflecting boundary conditions. For periodical conditions, Poisson's equation is solved by mears of the Fourier method. For reflecting conditions, the double recursive procedure is used. The value of the potential derivatives at the space grid points are calculated by means of the parabolic interpolation. The main purpose of the program is to investigate nonlinear phenomena in a plasma column after applying a short localized impulse of an external electric field.
