Computational Methods for Astrophysical Fluid Flow

Computational Methods for Astrophysical Fluid Flow

This book leads directly to the most modern numerical techniques for compressible fluid flow, with special consideration given to astrophysical applications. Emphasis is put on high-resolution shock-capturing finite-volume schemes based on Riemann solvers. The applications of such schemes, in particular the PPM method, are given and include large-scale simulations of supernova explosions by core collapse and thermonuclear burning and astrophysical jets. Parts two and three treat radiation hydrodynamics. The power of adaptive (moving) grids is demonstrated with a number of stellar-physical simulations showing very crispy shock-front structures.

Preface Many standard numerical algorithms for fluid dynamics have their roots in astrophysics; the reasons are probably twofold. ... astrophysicists seek some understanding by simulating them by methods of computational physics.
