Numerical Studies of Astrophysical Fluid Dynamical Systems
These researchers are extending and expanding their novel program that simulates complex and important astrophysical systems using high performance in-house codes for magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and energetic particle acceleration. They are just completing a complete re-write of their MHD "WOMBAT" code that extends its capabilities to include uniquely high resolution cosmic structure formation simulations. MSI resources are used for final testing of this code, as well as its application to a pair of critically important astrophysical problems.
A bibliography of this group’s publications is attached. A Research Spotlight about this work appeared on the MSI website in October 2014.
