6th Annual International Conference in Valencia, Spain
13–17 March 2011. This Volume contains the Proceedings of ASTRONUM-2011 – the sixth
in a series of international conferences now organized by the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research at the University of Alabama in
Huntsville, the Laboratory for Research into the Fundamental Laws of the
Universe at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission,
and the University of Valencia, Spain.
The subjects of the conference include such topics as turbulence and
cosmic ray transport, astrophysical and space plasma flows, kinetic and
hybrid simulations, numerical methods,algorithms,frameworks,
and data handling and visualization. All of these topics are of great
importance for scientists investigating solar structure, the heliosphere,
the Sun-Earth connection, and various astrophysical phenomena.
The problems discussed at the conference are characterized by different time and space scales, regions, or particle populations, for which
different sets of defining equations or concepts are necessary to understand the
physical system in its entirety. This book is of interest for specialists in
applied mathematics, astrophysics, space physics, and computer science
working on the application of novel numerical algorithms to contemporary problems arising in these fields. It can also be used by graduate students to get acquainted with the fundamental approaches to solving fluid dynamics and kinetic equations governing space plasma flows.
