This Volume contains the Proceedings of ASTRONUM-2010 — the
fifth in a series of international conferences now organized by the
Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research at the University of
Alabama in Huntsville and the Laboratory for Research into the
Fundamental Laws of the Universe at the French Alternative Energies
and Atomic Energy Commission. The subjects of the conference
included such topics as turbulence and cosmic ray transport, astrophysical
and space plasma flows, kinetic and hybrid simulations,
numerical methods, algorithms, and frameworks, and data handling
and visualization. All of these topics are of great importance for scientists
investigating solar structure, the heliosphere, the Sun-Earth
connection, and various astrophysical phenomena.
The problems discussed at the conference are characterized by different
time and space scales, regions, or particle populations, for which different
sets of defining equations or concepts are necessary to understand
the physical system in its entirety. This book will be of interest to
specialists in applied mathematics, astrophysics, space physics, and
computer science working on the application of novel numerical
algorithms to contemporary problems arising in these fields. It can also
be used by graduate students wanting to get acquainted with the fundamental
approaches to solving fluid dynamics and kinetic equations
governing space plasma flows.
