Summary
"Most matter in the universe, from the deep interior of planets to the core of stars, is at high temperature or high pressure compared to the matter of our ordinary experience. This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the basic physical theory on matter at such extreme conditions and of the mathematical modeling techniques involved in numerical simulations of its properties and behavior. Focusing on computational modelling, it discusses topics such as the basic properties of dense plasmas; ionization physics; the physical mechanisms by which laser light is absorbed in matter; radiation transport in matter; the basics of hydrodynamics and shock-wave formation and propagation; and numerical simulation of radiation-hydrodynamics phenomenology. End-of-chapter exercises allow the reader to test their comprehension of the material and introduce additional physics, and make this an invaluable resource for academic researchers and graduate students in this broad and interdisciplinary area of physics.
