The group was founded in 2006 on award of a MPG-Fellowship to Prof. Dr. Andreas Burkert
It is a collaboration between the LMU and the MPE. The group consists currently of five members.
Primary research focus are investigations on the physics of the centres of galaxies.
Computer simulations, including gas dynamics and radiative transfer are carried out with
grid and particle based codes. We complement observational projects at MPE and collaborate
closely with the computational astrophysics group at the university observatory.
