CoCoNuT Meeting 2017

Max-Plank-Institut für Astrophysik (Garching, Germany), October 25-27, 2017


The CoCoNuT code is a general relativistic hydrodynamics code with dynamical spacetime evolution. The aim of this numerical code is the study of several astrophysical scenarios in which general relativity can play an important role, namely the collapse of rapidly rotating stellar cores and the evolution of isolated neutron stars. The emphasis of the meeting shall be put on core collapse supernovae. Recent progress and future developments of this field and of the CoCoNuT code shall be discussed, but not exclusively. Possible topics of the meeting are:

  • Core-collapse simulations
  • Neutrinos
  • Dust and molecules in supernovae
  • Supernova remnants

The purpose of the CoCoNuT meeting is twofold: on the one hand it is intended as a regular (yearly so far) meeting of the CoCoNuT users, but it also serves as an opportunity to interchange ideas with users of similar numerical codes. Therefore the attendance to the meeting of anyone outside the CoCoNuT community is welcome. The CoCoNut meeting is a family friendly meeting. Information for those traveling with kids can be found here.
