Research group Computational Astrophysics group
At the Department of Astronomy, the development of computational tools spans research areas from solar physics to cosmology.
We specialize in the development of computational tools for gas dynamics (with and without magnetic fields) and radiative transfer. Simulations using these computer models are typically run on parallel systems and supercomputers. The research of members in this group connects closely to the research of the supernova and galaxy groups.
The researchers at the department are collaborating with the physics departments at Stockholm University and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) within the Oskar Klein Centre.
