Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics

Welcome to Computational Physics

On these pages, please find some information on our research within Computational Astrophysics. One main focus is the investigation of the formation process of stars and planets by developing new numerical methods and algorithms.

From January 2007 until December 2013 we had our DFG Research Group 759 on "Planet Formation".

Since January 2015, we host the Emmy Noether Research Group on Massive Star Formation.
