Splinter Meeting Computation

Computational Astrophysics

Time: Tuesday September 19, 14:00-16:30 and Wednesday September 20, 14:00-16:30

Room: HS3

Convenors: Rolf Kuiper (Tübingen), Hubert Klahr (MPIA), Wilhelm Kley (Tübingen)

Numerical simulations play an ever more important role in astrophysical research. The goal of the splinter meeting is to bring together the national and international community in the field to present and discuss new computational methods, algorithms and applications. The topics will include magneto-hydrodynamics, radiative transport, N-body dynamics, and others.
