9th Annual International Conference

Long Beach, CA, USA
23–27 June 2014

This Volume contains the Proceedings of ASTRONUM-2014, the ninth meeting in a series of international conferences organized by the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, U.S.A. and Maison de la Simulation, CEA-CNRS-INRIAUPsud- UVSQ, France. 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. All of these topics are of great importance to scientists investigating solar structure, the heliosphere, the Sun-Earth connection, and various astrophysical phenomena related to plasma flows.

The plasma phenomena discussed at the conference are characterized by different temporal and spatial scales, regions, and particle populations, for which different sets of defining equations or concepts are necessary to understand the physical systems in their 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 will also be useful to graduate students who want to get acquainted with the fundamental approaches to solving magnetohydrodynamic and kinetic equations governing space plasma flows.
