Computational Methods for Astrophysical Fluid Flow : Saas-Fee Advanced Course 27. Lecture Notes 1997 Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy Hardback
Edited by Oskar Steiner, A. Gautschy
Part of the Saas-Fee Advanced Course series
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.
