Accretion onto black holes, compact stars and protostars

Objective



The project aims at explaining the physical origin of the energetic 200 Man-months of on-the-job training of young postdoctoral researchers radiation and the powerful jets of matter that are emitted from X-ray stars will emphasize the integration of theory with observational data. Training in our own galaxy and from quasars. These objects, containing black holes includes automated analysis of astronomical observations, theoretical methods for, and large scale numerical simulations of,
or neutron stars, have similarities with protostars (in which stars and (magneto-)hydrodynamical and high energy radiative processes. Mobility of planets like our own solar system are presently forming). The project will exploit the similarities of these diverse objects by combining the the postdocs will be organized in the form of short and long-term research expertise from different research groups. The research methods include visits to the participating teams of the network. The proposed training innovative new means for numerical simulations of the physical processes program meets the needs posed by the recent large European investments in near accreting objects (using recent advances in computational methods and space based and ground based observatories, and the demands put on European astronomy by the recent spectacular advances in theory and observations of equipment) . The project provides a structure for integrating the accreting compact objects and protostars.
theoretical calculations with space-based and ground-based observations. The network is an interdisciplinary consortium combining the strongest observational and theoretical research teams in the field in Europe.
