Computational Methods in Astrophysics: Bochum, March 3-14 2008

The two-week school is part of the European Research Training Network Solaire and will be held at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, March 3-14, 2008. Modern computational methods, particularly the techniques of finite differences and volumes, particle-in-cell, multigrids and parallel computing will be explained in detail followed by hands-on exercises (first week) and applications to astrophysics, with an emphasis on solar physics (second week: lectures and demos). This second week concentrates on state-of-the-art computations in solar physics context. Its emphasis will be on recent applications as well as on algorithmic advances (grid adaptivity, multi-scale and multi-physics). This will be complemented by plenary talks from world-leading experts.

Plenary Speakers:

Annick Pouquet

NCAR, Director of the
Geophysical Turbulence Program

Philip Roe
