Old research pages

I'm keeping these old research pages here for the benefit of anyone who might arrive here from an external page. They are no longer updated. Please visit my new web site at http://sipapu.astro.illinois.edu/~ricker/. Eventually some content from these pages will migrate to the new site.

Welcome to the FLASH Cosmology Home Page.

FLASH is a modular, portable, highly scalable, adaptive-mesh simulation code for astrophysical hydrodynamics problems. It was originally developed at the DOE ASCI Alliances Center for Astrophysical Thermonuclear Flashes at the University of Chicago for the purpose of simulating Type Ia supernovae, novae, and X-ray bursts. It has since evolved to handle more general astrophysical problems, including those involving collisionless particle dynamics. FLASH is freely available from the ASCI Flash Center.

This web site is devoted to the development of FLASH modules for cosmological applications, particularly the simulation of large-scale structure. It is maintained by Paul Ricker, one of the original developers of FLASH. Support for this effort is provided by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).
