Turbulence in the Universe
Coordinators: Axel Brandenburg, Sasha Tchekhovskoy and Siyao Xu
Turbulence is an important process in various astrophysical environments and over vast scales. These environments range from the interior of stars, the solar wind, accretion flows, disks, jets, the interstellar medium and the circumgalactic medium, to the intra-cluster medium. The past few decades have seen great advances in both observational and theoretical studies of astrophysical turbulence. The advances in understanding and measuring turbulence have also brought significant changes to many branches of astronomy.
This conference will bring together turbulence experts from a wide range of subfields in astrophysics and physics. The goal is to encourage and enhance interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations. The conference will cover many topics, including: turbulent dynamo, magnetic reconnection, plasma physics, space physics, unresolved physics and sub-grid models in numerical simulations, turbulence in the laboratory, new observational techniques for diagnosing turbulence, connecting observations and models, and astrophysical applications of magnetized turbulence (e.g. star formation, cosmic rays, accretion, galaxy formation and evolution).
