Friday: 1, 2, 3.

Scope of the meeting

The purpose of the 3-day symposium is to highlight the role of radiation in fluid dynamical activity throughout astrophysics. A wide range of topics will be considered including thermal effects in the solar atmosphere and sunspots, radiation pressure driven dynamics such as photon bubbles in hot stars and accretion discs and reionization of the Universe by the first stars. The general topic of radiation hydrodynamics is particularly timely in view of the 60th anniversary of Åke Nordlund, who pioneered the interaction of radiation transport with three-dimensional hydrodynamics in the mid 1970s. Radiation hydrodynamics simulations have now reached a high degree of realism and are routinely performed in solar and stellar physics. Hydrodynamic and hydromagnetic effects that are due to radiation pressure are beginning to find broad appreciation not only in the field of stellar physics, but also accretion discs. Radiation hydrodynamics is to an increasing extent being incorporated into cosmological simulations in order to understand radiative feedback in structure formation. Given such great diversity of applications, the cross-disciplinary exchange of idea is therefore particularly important.
