Implicit Monte Carlo with a Linear Discontinuous Finite Element Material Solution and Piecewise Non-Constant Opacity
ABSTRACT The non-linear thermal radiative-transfer equations can be solved in various ways. One popular way is the Fleck and Cummings Implicit Monte Carlo (IMC) method. The IMC method was originally
Chemical evolution of inner regions of protoplanetary disks around T Tauri stars
This thesis has investigated the chemical evolution of the inner regions (r ? 10 AU) of a modelled protoplanetary disk surrounding a low-mass T Tauri star; a phase our own solar system underwent some
On the derivations of the Equation of Hydrostatic Equilibrium
We develop and present a geometrical and an analytical derivation of the equation of hydrostatic equilibrium in spherically symmetric stars with a generalized stress tensor. The analytical derivation
EG Andromedae: A Symbiotic System as an Insight into Red Giant Chromospheres
Symbiotic systems are interacting binary stars consisting of both hot and cool components. This results in a complex environment that is ideal for studying the latter stages of stellar evolution
Effects of Collisions With Rocky Planets on the Structure of Hot Jupiters
The observed Hot Jupiters exhibit a wide range of physical properties. For a given mass, many planets have inflated radii, while others are surprisingly compact and may harbor large central cores.
Evolution of Hot and Dense Stellar Interiors: The Role of the Weak Interaction Processes
The evolution of the hot and dense interior of massive stars has aroused the intense interest of researchers the last more than three decades. In this article, the role of the semi-leptonic weak
Modified Vlasov equation and dispersion relations for a relativistic radiating electron plasma
A modified Vlasov equation is obtained by developing a covariant statistical mechanics for a system of electrons without considering the effects of the ions and including the Landau–Lifshitz equation
