Task Description and Goals

We develop hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic codes and solvers for astrophysical problems in CompAS. We invite students to explore and validate state-of-the-art numerical codes and solvers made with fundamental numerical methods and physics under active development. These codes and solvers range from the Newtonian to General Relativistic regimes occurring from young stars to black holes. The students will obtain hands-on experience testing the accuracy and performance of numerical methods for HD, MHD, and particle problems for their validation and benchmarks. We look for highly motivated students interested in numerical methods, code development techniques, their science verifications, potential applications, and explorations of some machine learning approaches. Actual projects will be assigned commensurate with students' interests, experiences, and levels of academic background. The experiences obtained will prove very helpful in future career development in science and engineering, in addition to astronomy and astrophysics.
