Numerical Hydrodynamics — Joshua Faber

In this talk, I’ll discuss how to implement a simple numerical hydrodynamics code, and discuss various pitfalls one can encounter along the way. I’ll discuss both of the leading options, grid-based Eulerian hydrodynamics and particle-based Lagrangian dynamics, noting which kinds of approach work better for which problems. Time permitting, pretty pictures and movies will be shown.
