Christian Klingenberg

research interests:

     •  mathematical fluid mechanics

       •   compressible gas dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics

       •   kinetic modeling, kinetic modeling of gas mixtures and of plasma, numerics for this

       •   theory of hyperbolic conservation laws: well-posedness in one and multiple space dimensions, relaxation limits, discontinuous flux conservation laws

       •   modeling macroscopic fluid flow equations via microscopic interacting particle systems

       •   numerics for hyperbolic conservation laws: finite volume schemes in one and multiple space dimensions, approximate Riemann solvers, discontinuous Galerkin methods, moving mesh methods

        •  low Mach limits for the Euler equations and equations of ideal magnetohydrodynamics, also with gravity, both theoretical and numerical

        •  well-balanced schemes applied to the Euler equations and equations of ideal magnetohydrodynamics, both with gravity

        •  numerical methods that preserve stationary solutions for for kinetic and fluid equations

       •  uncertainty quantification, theoretical coercivity estimates, numerical simulations for kinetic and fluid equations

        •  astrophysical applications: accretion discs, protostellar jets, turbulence modeling, large eddy simulations, star formation, stellar evolution, galaxy evolution
