Winter 2003

This is the web page for the Winter 2007 section of Astronomy 825.

- 1. Overview
- 2. From Boltzmann to Navier-Stokes to Euler
- 3. Hydrostatic Equilibrium
- 4. Pressure and Viscosity
- 5. Accretion Flows
- 6. Sound Waves and Gravitational Instability
- 7. Shocks
- 8. Radiative Cooling and Heating

- Problem Set 1, due Thursday, January 18. As a supplement to the solution (handed out in class), my default sm macros are here, and the script I used for plotting the results is here.
- Problem Set 2, due Thursday, January 25 (Part I) and Tuesday, January 30 (Part II).
- Problem Set 3, due Tuesday, February 6.
- Problem Set 4, due Thursday, February 15. My sm routines for making the plots for the solution set are available here in a tar archive that you can unpack with the command "tar -xvf hydroplots.tar". To use them, you will need my default sm macros (see PS 1 above).
- Problem Set 5, due Thursday, March 1. My sm routine for making the plots for the solution set is available here if you want to use it.
- Problem Set 6, due Friday, March 9. My routines for making the plots for this problem set are available here in a tar archive.
