International Conference on Numerical Modeling of Space Plasma Flows (3d: 2008: US Virgin Islands) Ed. by Nikolai V. Pogorelov et al.

Astronomical Soc./Pacific


324 pages



Astronomical Society of the Pacific conference series; v.406


Papers from a June 2008 conference discuss topics related to performing high-resolution, continuum mechanics and particle simulations of physical phenomena in space physics and astrophysics. Material is in sections on turbulence and cosmic ray transport, astrophysical flows, space plasma flows, kinetic and hybrid simulations, numerical methods and algorithms, and data handling and visualization. The book examines both the application of numerical methods and the algorithms themselves, allowing for discussion of the challenges that theory imposes on numerical schemes for solving partial differential equations which describe plasma in different physical environments. The book will be of interest to specialists and useful to advanced students majoring in applied mathematics, space physics, astrophysics, and computer science. Pogorelev is affiliated with the Department of Physics and the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research at the University of Alabama. There is no subject index.
