Physics Department Colloquium
The Good the Bad and the Awful Scientific Simulation and Prediction
Time: 4:00 PM
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (coffee at 330 pm)
Speaker: Leo Kadanoff, University of Chicago
Abstract: Worthwhile computer simulations are done to explore uncharted territory, resolve a well-posed scientific or technical question, or to make a design choice. Some excellent work is reviewed Some less happy stories are recounted. I then concentrate my attention upon astrophysical simulations, showing how they can explore possible scenarios for stellar explosions.
Host: Coppersmith
