XIII Würzburg Workshop on Supernovae and Stellar Hydrodynamics

19. December 2018

On December 17 and 18, 2018, the PSO group organized the 13th Würzburg Workshop on Supernovae and Stellar Hydrodynamics in Heidelberg at the Studio Villa Bosch. About 30 researchers from international universities and institutions gathered to discuss new developments in the field and to collaborate on new and existing projects, among them several HITS alumni from the PSO and the TAP groups. The participants discussed in detail the modeling of Type Ia supernova explosions, dynamical processes in stellar evolution, mergers and common envelope phases in binary stellar systems and neutron star merger events.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
