24 Aug 2020 Michael Schlottke-Lakemper Andrew R. Winters Hendrik Ranocha Gregor J. Gassner

One of the challenges when simulating astrophysical flows with self-gravity is to compute the gravitational forces. In contrast to the hyperbolic hydrodynamic equations, the gravity field is described by an elliptic Poisson equation... (read more)
