Direct Statistical Simulation of Astrophysical Fluids

22 February 2013

Time: 4:30pm
Venue: GO Jones UG1

Astronomy Unit Seminars
Prof. Steven Tobias (University of Leeds)

In this talk I will discuss the relatively new technique of direct statistical simulation as applied to two problems of astrophysical interest.  The first involves jet formation by barotropic turbulence, whilst the second describes joint instability of magnetic field and shear.
