Research Project: Hydrodynamics Fluctuations in High-Energy Nuclear Collisions

Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics for hydrodynamic fluctuations

I worked on this research project at Wayne State University under Professor Chun Shen from May 2019 to July 2019. During my 10 weeks at WSU, I wrote an open source code package in C++ with C++ 11 standard that used a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) algorithm from astrophysics to solve the hydrodynamic evolution equations (a set of non-linear partial differential equations (PDEs)) for relativistic fluids created in high-energy collisions between atomic nuclei. I also wrote a report on my findings.
