UV CoCoNuT Meeting 2014
DAA/DMA (Valencia, Spain), November 26-28, 2014

CoCoNuT Code

CoCoNuT Meeting 2014


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 this year shall be put on Numerical Methods. 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:

  • Hyperbolic and elliptic systems.
  • Magnetohydrodynamics.
  • Radiation transport.
  • Turbulence.

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.

Invited speakers:

  • Edouard Audit, CEA (France)
  • Manuel Castro, University of Malaga (Spain)
  • Antonio Marquina, University of Valencia (Spain)
Conference venue:

The meeting will take place at the salon de grados of the Mathematics Faculty in the Burjassot campus of the University of Valencia, in Valencia, Spain, from November 26 to 28, 2014.
