Computational Plasma Astrophysics

Petra Sukova, on July 18-29, 2016, participated in the summer school on “Prospects in Theoretical Physics – Computational Plasma Astrophysics”, organised by the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton. The topics of the school cover different approaches to astrophysical plasma, such as magnetohydrodynamics, kinetic theory, magnetic confinement of plasma or the problematic of black hole magnetosphere and jet launching. The website of the school, and some on-line materials, are available under this link.
