Astrophysics on Moving Meshes
  OKC colloquia

Tuesday 27 May 2014
from 13:15 to 14:15
at FA32
Speaker : Andrew MacFadyen (New York University)
Abstract : I will discuss recent developments in astrophysical gas dynamics simulations making use of moving numerical meshes. These developments allow for dramatically increased accuracy for a wide range of problems of current interest. I will present new moving mesh simulations resolving subtle fluid dynamical behavior in both jetted outflows and accretion disks relevant for gamma-ray bursts, binary black hole accretion and the closely related problem of gap formation in protoplanetary disks.
