Encyclopedia > Richard Klein

Dr. Richard Klein is an Adjunct Professor of Astronomy at the University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and a Scientific Staff Member at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). He has pioneered methods of radiative transfer and adaptive mesh refinement applied to computational astrophysics over the last several decades. He played a central role in the development of the radiation-driven implosion model for induced star formation and in developing the leading theory of stellar winds for hot stars. He has pursued a broad range of problems ranging from star formation to high energy physics, including the interactions of supernovae shocks with interstellar clouds, the formation of low and high mass stars, accretion onto neutron stars, and Compton-heated winds from accretion disks. In addition, he has applied these simulations to scaled laboratory astrophysics experiments. He was recognized by the American Physics Society (APS) in 2003 for his contributions to computational astrophysics and named a Fellow. In numerical analysis, central to any Eulerian method is the manner in which it discretizes the continuous domain of interest into a grid of many individual elements. ... Star formation is the process by which gas in molecular clouds gets transformed into stars. ...
