day time room type lecturer
Monday 14:15 - 15:45 28.0.087 seminar Roberto Cotesta
Thursday 12:15 - 13:45 28.0.087 lecture Helge Todt


Computational simulations are a standard tool in astrophysics. In this lecture we present basic numerical methods for the simulation of physical problems based on relevant examples from astrophysics, exercises in C/C++ and Fortran are included. As Fortran is very common in astrophysics, this lecture also contains an introduction to Fortran.

This course is part I of the specialization "Computational Astrophysics".
