Abstract : In this work, a splitting strategy is introduced to approximate two-dimensional rotation motions. Unlike standard approaches based on directional splitting which usually lead to a wrong angular velocity and then to large error, the splitting studied here turns out to be exact in time. Combined with spectral methods, the so-obtained numerical method is able to capture the solution to the associated partial differential equation with a very high accuracy. A complete numerical analysis of this method is given in this work. Then, the method is used to design highly accurate time integrators for Vlasov type equations: the Vlasov-Maxwell system and the Vlasov-HMF model. Finally , several numerical illustrations and comparisons with methods from the literature are discussed.
