Scientific seminar on the differential and functional differential equation on topic “Supercomputer modeling in astrophysics: challenges, methodology, results” (chair: Professor A.L. Skubachevskii)
On May 23 at 12:00 p.m. (Moscow time)
Speaker: Kulikov Igor Mikhailovich, Doctor of Physics and Mathematics, Supercomputer Simulation Laboratory, Institute of Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Geophysics of the Siberian Branch of the RAS, Novosibirsk.
Topic: “Supercomputer modeling in astrophysics: challenges, methodology, results”.
The report will present a number of topical problems of astrophysics and the author’s contribution to their solution. The main attention will be paid to the development of numerical methods for solving hydrodynamic equations taking into account gravity and relativistic effects, as well as the experience of using various parallel programming technologies to develop program codes for massively parallel supercomputer architectures. The current limitations of the developed mathematical apparatus will also be identified and the prospects for its development for solving a wider range of problems in computational astrophysics will be formulated.
