Stellar Hydro Days, 26-28 July, 2006
Format and venue
July 26, 2006, 12:03
- Updated schedule for Thursday and Friday: see below
The hydrodynamics of the stellar interior where multiple fluids are
participating in convective and other mixing and nuclear reaction
processes is a rich, emerging cross roads area of research, connecting
multiple interests in academia and at the labs. Many discrepancies
exist between stellar astrophysical observables and predictions of
existing simplified and often one-dimensional models of complex
fluid-flow problems. These are now beeing addressed by constructing
realistic multi-dimensional simulations of the important processes
involved e.g., turbulent entrainment, multi-fluid mixing, interaction
of reactive and hydrodynamic processes. These astrophysical problems
are highly relevant for interpreting observation, yet at the same time
provide opportunities for alternative code verification and
Format and venue
The stellar hydro days meeting follows the pattern established at last
year's meeting: informal presentations and lots of time for open
discussion. The meeting will take place in the Avanza Technologies
meeting room in the Research Park building on the same floor as the
Hot Rocks Cafe. Wired internet connection will be available in the
meeting room. Wireless is availbale in the Hot Rocks Cafe. The contact
person for the meeting room is Monica from Avanza Technologies, who
can help you if you absolutely can not find the room.
How to get to the venue:
Directions to the Avanza Technical Facility are: 2nd Floor, Room 202A,
(diagonally across from the elevators).
Here is a map how to get to Los Alamos Research Park.
- Arizona: Casey Meakin, Dave Arnett, Patrick Young, Marko Princevac (UC Riverside), Stefan Wernz
- LANL: John Grove, Bruce Fryxell, Chris Fryer, Frank Timmes, Rob Huecksteadt, Bernd Freytag, Falk Herwig, Fernando Grinstein and others
- Minnesota: Paul Woodward, David Porter, Tyler Fuchs, James Hansen
All talks are approximately 30min talk with 30min discussion
interspersed and/or added at the end. There is time for coffee and
