Description

Hydrodynamic simulations have been pillars of nuclear theory for several decades. Here we will show that we can construct transport theories that capture all of the hydro features in the limit of very short mean free path, but also are applicable for large mean free path scenarios, in which hydro fails. We will solve a series of standard hydrodynamics test cases and also who that we can simulate instabilities of the Rayleigh-Taylor and Kelvin-Helmholtz types.
