Living Reviews are open-access review journals that allow authors to regularly update their articles to include latest developments. Its companion research journals primarily publish original work.

Recent articles from Computational Astrophysics and Cosmology

I’m writing to let you know about some of the recent articles we’ve published in Computational Astrophysics and Cosmology (CompAC).

With this open-access journal we hope to make the connection between the computational science and the astrophysics communities. In that respect I hope that you will enjoy reading these pioneering papers as much as I have enjoyed them. The following list of publications reflects only a small part of the range in scientific topics we seek for in this journal.

Recent articles:

– “Riemann solvers and Alfven waves in black hole magnetospheres” by B Punsly, D Balsara, J Kim and S Garain
– “In situ and in-transit analysis of cosmological simulations” by B Friesen, A Almgren, Z Lukic, G Weber, D Morozov, V Beckner and M Day
– “Achieving convergence in galaxy formation models by augmenting N-body merger trees” by A J Benson, C Cannella and S Cole
– “Simulations of stripped core-collapse supernovae in close binaries” by A Rimoldi, S Portegies Zwart and E M Rossi

If you are interested in submitting your own work to CompAC, you’ll find all the submission guidelines at the journal’s home page: http://comp-astrophys-cosmol.springeropen.com/

I look forward to reading your work.

Kind regards,
