FOR 1048 PostGraduate School


The school is directed at PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in plasma- and astrophysics, who will have the chance to learn and practice methods commonly used in this field. The topics of the school will cover

  • Computational infrastructure (Makefiles, version control, IDEs)
  • Hyperbolic systems (Riemann solvers, wave propagation methods, CWENO)
  • Particle in Cell and Vlasov simulations (Boris push, charge deposition, Darwin approximation)
  • Parallel programming (OpenMP, MPI, CUDA)
