School Aims and Format
The school will cover basic theoretical and computational aspects of astrophysical fluids and plasmas. The topics of the lectures are detailed in the preliminary program outlined below, which furthermore includes complementary exercise tutorials. The general layout will consist of lectures in the morning, and hands-on exercises in the afternoon. The first lecture is mostly theoretical in nature, while the second lecture in the morning connects with a specific physical application. The students will apply the concepts they learned in the morning session using two state-of-the-art open source numerical codes during the exercises. This approach will achieve the dual goal of familiarizing the students with the theory while giving them valuable hands-on experience with state-of-the-art computational astrophysics codes.
- The connection between continuum dynamics and the Vlasov-Boltzmann equation
- Multi-fluid dynamics of weakly-coupled plasmas
- Gas-dust coupling of dusty fluids
- The role of waves, shocks and instabilities
Introduce the students to the fundamental theoretical concepts and current observational constraints.
Bring together students interested in these subjects with some of the world's experts in an environment fostering interactions and exchange of ideas, allowing the students to develop their international network.
Encourage the students to continue working in these fields, emphasizing the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to research in these active areas.
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System
All the students attending the lectures and actively participating in the exercise tutorials will earn a minimum of 2.5 ECTS points.
Some limited financial assistant for hotel or travel expenses may be available and individual cases will be considered upon request. This financial assistance will be primarily devoted to help students who would not otherwise be able to attend the school. Students seeking financial assistance should fill all the requested fields in the application forms in order to receive full consideration.
