Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


We are developing an astrophysical rotating plasma simulator, which consists of reusable modules plugged-in to a platform of a 3-dimensional magnetohydrodynamical code. Modules incorporating magnetic diffusion, thermal conduction, radiative cooling, self-gravity, and so on, have been designed. We are also developing modules to visualize the numerical results. The code is parallelized and optimized for vector-parallel computers.
