Abstract: We propose to substantially expand our capabilities of modeling relativistic flows of magnetized plasma by merging the UAHuntsville-developed Multi-Scale Fluid-Kinetic Simulation Suite and the advanced relativistic MHD (RMHD) code MRGENESIS developed in the University of Valencia. Combined, these will allow us to perform adaptive-mesh-refinement (AMR) simulations of discontinuous relativistic flows ubiquitous in the universe. The code developed with this approach will allow us to address problems like the dynamical evolution of magnetized ultra-relativistic outflows that give rise to afterglows of Gamma Ray Bursts (GRB). The solution of this problem will substantially benefit on the code's AMR capability.
