TIARA Lectures on hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics
April 19, 26 and May 3, 2019
Taipei, Taiwan

Lectures on hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics

In ASIAA/TIARA (theoretical astrophysics group), we will offer introductory lectures on hydrodynamics (HD) and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), as a preparation of the Science Discussion Meetings in TIARA, which will start after the introductory lectures. Since HD courses are not offered in Taiwan for undergraduates, graduate students (or junior/senior undergraduate students) in any institute/University are encouraged to participate.
