Escuela sobre metodos computacionales en astrofísica, en Alemania

A Two-week School for «Computational Methods in Astrophysics»
From: Horst Fichtner

European Research Training Network «Solaire» ( at the
Ruhr-Universität Bochum (, Germany, March 3-14, 2008

The two-week school is part of the European Research Training Network Solaire
and will be held at the Ruhr-University 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). The 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 two plenary talks from
world-leading experts.
