This volume contains the papers based on talks given at ASTRONUM-2006 -- the first in a series of international conferences launched by the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics in the University of California at Riverside in collaboration with the California Space Institute. The subjects of the conference included such topics as numerical methods, algorithms, and frameworks; turbulence and cosmic ray transport; large-scale gas dynamic, MHD, hybrid and kinetic simulations of space plasma flows; data handling and visualization. All of these are of great importance for scientists investigating solar structure, the heliosphere, Sun-Earth connection, and astrophysical phenomena. The problems discussed at the conference involved significantly different scales, regions, or particle populations, and for which more than one set of defining equations or concepts is necessary to understand the physical system in its entirety. This books will be of interest for specialists in applied mathematics, space physics, astrophysics, and computer science working on the application of novel numerical algorithms to contemporary problems arising in these fields.For more information about this publication and other ASP Conference Series Proceedings, click here (a new browser window will open).
