Astronomical Computing (ASTR4004/ASTR8004)

This course provides students with the skills necessary to write computer programs for the construction of models of astronomical processes, for the analysis of data and for multi-dimensional simulations.

2nd semester 2017; Tuesdays and Thursdays, 09:15-10:45, Woolley Seminar Room
(previously taught 2nd semester 2016)

Computational astrophysics meeting

Meetings to discuss computational techniques (grid-based hydrodynamics, particle-based hydrodynamics, radiative transfer, turbulence, star formation, magnetic fields, photo-ionization, N-body, etc., and post-processing tools and methods).

Mondays, 13:30-14:30, Advanced Instrumentation and Technology Centre (AITC1)
