Title: Understanding Fluid Processes in Astrophysics & Geophysics via Numerical Simulation
Abstract: What will the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans look like at the end of the century? What are the fates of the stars and planets observed in unprecedented detail with recent space missions? These questions are more closely related than they may seem. While there are very different physical conditions in each of these systems, their flows are determined by the same Navier–Stokes equations. In this talk, I will describe fluid processes in common across these astrophysical & geophysical systems that contribute to large uncertainties in their evolution. My group aims to understand these processes to develop robust models that can be extrapolated to nature systems. This has motivated the development of the open-source solver Dedalus, which can solve nearly arbitrary user-specified PDEs written in vector and tensor notation. I will also discuss new algorithms we have developed and implemented to solve general PDEs in cylindrical and spherical geometry, as well as open questions in how to accurately approximate PDEs with boundary conditions. Together, this work illustrates the tight connections between physics and numerical analysis, and the benefits to combining efforts in these fields.
