    • Research at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics deals mainly with theoretical astrophysics. The main focus are stellar evolution, accretion phenomena, supernova explosions, particle physics, high-energy astrophysics, the evolution of galaxies and large scale structure, and processes in the early universe. Key activities include the numerical simulation of astrophysical systems on high and ultra-high performance computers. Research on stellar evolution and hydrodynamical phenomena in astrophysics is complemented by the investigation of structure formation in the universe, interpretation of X-ray and gammy-ray observations and the theoretical modelling of the underlying high-energy processes. Another important task is the development of algorithms to analyse the data from increasingly large simulations and future observational projects.
