Monte Carlo radiation hydrodynamics: Methods, tests and application to Type Ia supernova ejecta

Noebauer, U M; Sim, Stuart A; Kromer, M; Ropke, F. K.; Hillebrandt, Wolfgang


In astrophysical systems, radiation-matter interactions are important in transferring energy and momentum between the radiation field and the surrounding material. This coupling often makes it necessary to consider the role of radiation when modelling the dynamics of astrophysical fluids. During the last few years, there have been rapid developments in the use of Monte Carlo methods for numerical radiative transfer simulations. Here, we present an approach to radiation hydrodynamics that is...[Show more]
