Bad Honnef Physics School
Information about the Project on Numerical Hydrodynamics
Time: Thursday, 28.June, 14:00-18:00
In this project the participants are invited to write a short computer programme
on their own to solve the Linear Advection Problem.
This is often taken as a simple example for hydrodynamic problems.
Basic Introduction to numerical Hydrodynamics
Slides to be shown at the School.
An Online Book
on Computational Hydrodynamics for Astrophysicists. See in particuar Chapter 3 for details on Advection.
The Pyro Hydro Code for it.
Offers an interactive approach to programming. Easy to learn and write programes. Simple way to visualise.
A very nice introduction can be found in the book: Computational Physics by Mark Newman
From his webpage sample programs and
chapters are freely available.
Today's Standard Programming language for scientific programs.
An Online Tutorial
Guidance and specific help to the project will be given by Daniel Thun (PhD student) and Willy Kley.
