"We showed how to use SPH, for flows in curved metrics of space. We captured the shocks, and adjusted the clocks. Our tests, they all worked in each case."
— Liptai & Price (2019)
How does this dust collect in protoplanetary discs to form planets like the Earth and people like us? How do stars feed black holes in tidal disruption events? How does the common envelope get ejected?
All of these questions can be answered using Phantom, a smoothed particle hydrodynamics code developed right here at Monash, and MCFOST, a class-leading radiative transfer code also developed at Monash.
It's been a couple of traumatic years since we last met, so it's time to gather the user community together, solve some problems and set some goals
1. To consolidate development efforts
2. To set a roadmap for development priorities
3. To grow the user community, and especially to encourage sideways interaction between users
We will set each afternoon of the workshop as a hackfest, to collaboratively implement new features and tests
Dates: 13th-17th Feb 2023
Venue: Monash University, Melbourne, Australia
We are grateful to the Monash-Warwick alliance for support for the workshop
