The Flatiron Computational Fluid Dynamics for Astrophysics summer school will introduce students to the breadth of numerical methods needed to model the range of physical processes encountered in astrophysics. Through lectures and hands-on tutorials, the school will aim to cover different numerical techniques (finite volume, spectral, Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics, Moving Mesh, high-order), different physical processes including MHD and radiation transfer, and different architectures (CPU and GPU computing). The different methods will be illustrated with scientific examples across fields, including star and galaxy formation, the ISM, and high energy astrophysics.
Students will be expected to learn at least one of the codes and run some simple simulations by the end of this program.
Local experts from CCA, NYU, Columbia, Princeton, IAS and Stony Brook
  • Students who are enthusiastic about fluid dynamics and need fluid dynamics simulations for their research (Early to mid stage PhD students. Exceptional masters students and undergraduate students will also be considered.)
  • Experience with coding and running simulations is highly desirable. 


Simons Foundation will sponsor admitted participants for the duration of the summer school for their room and board, and travel to and from the summer school.
