The question how the solar system and exoplanetary systems formed remains one of the key questions in astrophysics. The process of planet formation involves a large array of complex physical processes. Solving this question usually requires the use of complex numerical calculations, and hence the deployment of computer programs to undertake these calculations.
This summer school aims to teach young astrophysicists of PhD and Postdoc level the various physical processes leading to the formation of planets in protoplanetary disks, the computational methods to model them, as well as the observational data supporting these theories.
The purpose of this school is to provide the participants practical hands-on experience with the use of several code packages to perform numerical modeling of various aspects of planet formation.
The school has space for about 20 participants. PhD students and postdocs from the SPP 1992 have precedence (in that order), but if there is space left, then everyone else is also welcome.
