Building a Better Hydro
Hydrodynamics simulations of dynamical systems can address a wide variety of length scales, from subatomic to galactic. But hydrodynamics is generally limited to small Knudsen numbers. Starting from kinetic theory one can develop procedures that avoid this limitation in a self-consistent way. Examples ranging from relativistic heavy ion collisions to the physics of laser fusion to supernova core collapse dynamics will be shown.
