Astrophysics (Theoretical)

The astrophysics group at UGA studies a wide range of astrophysical objects and phenomena using a wide range of theoretical methods. We work on stars, star forming regions, and hot and cold gas clouds and supersonic shocks within our Galaxy.

We perform detailed computer simulations of fluid motions and spectral signitures and we compute some of the atomic/molecular parameters needed for spectral simulations.
