RAS Meeting on Computational Astrophysics
11 February 2005
Society of Antiquaries Lecture Theatre, Burlington House
Organizers: Dr Steve Tobias (Leeds), Prof. Alan Hood (St. Andrews)
This meeting will present the latest advances in computational
astrophysical fluid mechanics and magnetohydrodynamics. The meeting
will contain descriptions of both a range of numerical techniques and
the important astrophysical results of state-of-the-art computations
performed on massively parallel architectures
