The 3-month program will open with a set of tutorials, given by members of the semester’s Scientific Organizing Committee as well as by other distinguished astrophysicists and mathematicians. The tutorials are designed to provide a broad overview of current issues in computational astrophysics, accessible to scientists from many different backgrounds.
Talks will relate both to specific grand challenge problems and to mathematical and computational approaches for addressing them. Specific topics will include:
(Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Mathematics)
Richard Klein (UC Berkeley and LLNL)
Mark Morris (UCLA, Physics & Astronomy)
Stanley Osher (IPAM, Mathematics)
Harold Yorke (California Institute of Technology, Astrophysics)
