AST 390: Computational Astrophysics#
This is a collection of notebooks on computational (astro)physics. Starting at the beginning, these notebooks introduce numerical methods for derivatives, integration, rooting finding, ODEs, and linear algebra and then move onto applications in astrophysics.
List of Astrophysical Applications#
An example of integrating to infinity by integrating the Planck function over wavelength.
Shooting methods for two-point boundary value problelms applied to the Lane-Emden equation for polytropes.
