CompAS: Towards Next Generation Computational Astrophysics

  • Dedicated project for computational astrophysics at ASIAA since 2001
  • Development of in-house codes with state-of-the-art numerical methods as well as using and improving the community codes remains one of the key objectives
  • Targeted physics regimes range from Newtonian hydrodynamics to relativistic magnetohydrodynamics
  • Dedicated to harnessing new computational architectures
  • Optimized for challenging astrophysical systems requiring innovative and dedicated methodology development

History of CFD-MHD initiative

CFD-MHD initiative has been a joint research project of the Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics (ASIAA) and the Institute of Mathematics (ASIM) of the Academia Sinica, and the Department of Mathematics of the National Taiwan University. In February 2012, the name of the initiative, CFD-MHD, was changed into CompAS, for Computational Astrophysics.

Simulations vs Observations(NGC 6782).
The CompAS (formerly CFD-MHD) team is developing a high performance numerical code to study the structure formation in disk galaxies. Numerical simulations have successfully reproduced the spiral arms excited by stellar bars, such as the ones seen in NGC 6782
