Numerical Modelling of Astrophysical Turbulence by Wolfram Schmidt
English | 2013 | ISBN: 3319014749 | 120 pages | PDF | 4,6 MB
Turbulence has emerged as an important research topic in several areas of astrophysics. Understanding and modeling turbulence is particularly important for the dynamics of the interstellar medium, but also for the intergalactic medium, as well as in stars.
The advancement of methods for numerical simulations of astrophysical turbulence, however, is still challenging because of gravity, strong compressibility, magnetic fields, and other effects.
The book begins with a review of general aspects of numerical simulations of turbulence. In the main part the author presents findings from his numerical studies on astrophysical turbulence and discusses the astrophysical implications. He also explains in detail the numerical schemes utilized.
Readers will find that this book offers a compact yet comprehensive introduction.
