    We present our results of numerical simulations of the most massive primordial stars. For the extremely massive non-rotating Pop III stars over 300M⊙, they would simply die as black holes. But the Pop III stars with initial masses 140 - 260M⊙ may have died as gigantic explosions...

    Very massive Population III stars explode as pair-instability supernovae (PI SNe), the most energetic thermonuclear explosions in the universe with energies 100 times those of Type Ia and Type II SNe. Their extreme luminosities may allow them to be discovered at the era of first light, unveiling...

    The Richtmyer-Meshkov instability (RMI) at the ablation front of laser-irradiated planar targets is investigated by two-dimensional numerical hydrodynamics simulations. The linear evolution of perturbations seeded either by surface roughness or target inhomogeneity is studied for perturbation...

    We present numerical results on three-dimensional (3D) hydrodynamic core-collapse simulations of an 11.2M⊙ star. By comparing one-(1D) and two-dimensional(2D) results with those of 3D, we study how the increasing spacial multi-dimensionality affects the postbounce supernova dynamics. The...

    The interest in relativistic beam-plasma instabilities has been greatly rejuvenated over the past two decades by novel concepts in laboratory and space plasmas. Recent advances in this long-standing field are here reviewed from both theoretical and numerical points of view. The primary focus is...

    The effects of the initial upstream plasma β on the plasmoid instability are studied via two-dimensional resistive magnetohydrodynamic simulations. For cases with nonuniform β dependent initial plasma mass density and uniform temperature, our numerical results indicate that the critical...

    Transition prediction in two-dimensional laminar boundary layers developing on airfoil sections at subsonic speeds and very low turbulence levels is still a challenge. The commonly used semi-empirical prediction tools are mainly based on linear stability theory and do not account for nonlinear...

    Results are presented from the numerical study of the processes accompanying the formation of chain structures in systems with an anisotropic pairwise interaction similar to the interaction caused by ion focusing. The simulations were performed for extended and bounded chain structures in a wide...
