Fluid Dynamics and Dynamos in Astrophysics and Geophysics by Andrew M. Soward,Christopher A. Jones,David W. Hughes,Nigel

By Andrew M. Soward,Christopher A. Jones,David W. Hughes,Nigel O. Weiss

The expanding energy of machine assets besides nice advancements in observational information lately have resulted in a few amazing and speedy advances in astrophysical fluid dynamics. the topic spans 3 certain yet overlapping groups whose pursuits specialize in (1) accretion discs and high-energy astrophysics; (2) sun, stellar, and galactic magnetic fields; and (3) the geodynamo, planetary magnetic fields, and linked experiments. This publication grew out of a unique convention subsidized by way of the London Mathematical Society with the aid of EPSRC that introduced jointly best researchers in all of those parts to switch rules and assessment the prestige of the field.

The many attention-grabbing difficulties addressed during this quantity concern:
