Computational Atomic Physics
High Performance Computing
Turbulence and mixing: Compressible turbulence and intermittency (energy dissipation, fractal dimensions of the most dissipative structures; beta models); Direct numerical simulations (DNS) and large eddy simulations (LES); Turbulent mixing.
High performance computing: Parallelisation models (distributed and shared memory models, hybrid models); Heterogenous computing using CPUs, general purpose graphics processor units (GPGPU) and coprocessors (e.g.,Intel Xeon Phi); Software refactoring and acceleration; Big Data e High Performance Data Analytics. AMR data files.
Numerical Analysis: Numerical methods for partial differential equations; Computational gas dynamics; Approximate Riemann solvers (Hartex-Lax-van Leer family solvers (HLL, HLLC, HLLD, and HLLM), Roe, Piecewise Parabolic Method (PPM), Corner Transport Upwind PPM (CTU-PPM), WENO) for non- magnetized and magnetized gases; Numerical schemes for magnetized gases (Constrained transport); Adaptive mesh refinement and block mesh refinement.
