Task Description and Goals

We develop hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic codes and solvers for astrophysical problems in CompAS. We invite students to explore and validate high-order conservative finite difference methods and others under development. The students will be given a short introduction to the state-of-art numerical codes and solvers. The students will have hands-on experience testing the accuracy and performance of numerical methods for HD-MHD problems. We look for highly-motivated students with strong interests in numerical methods, code development techniques, and their potential applications. The experiences obtained will prove very helpful in future career development in science and engineering.
