CP1: Current Developments in Numerical astrophysics


Session Organiser: Chris Wareing (University of Leeds, UK), Christer Sandin (AIP, Germany)


We invite contributions to this session focused on the development, testing and implementation of numerical schemes currently used in astrophysics, including but not limited to methods for particle dynamics, hydrodynamics, magneto-hydrodynamics, radiation transport and statistics. We particularly encourage submissions from early career researchers and graduate students, presenting latest developments to mature codes, or presenting new codes and the associated validations, or seeking guidance to overcome development issues. This will be a rare chance for the UK and German communities to present to each other and cross-fertilise new developments. We intend to have an invited review [Prof. S.A.E.G. Falle, Leeds, S2?: to be confirmed] followed by a number of either 10+2-minute or 12+3-minute short presentations, depending on the number of abstracts per session
