[104.01] MHD with SPH: Application to the High Redshift IGM

J. Murray, J. Wadsley, J. R. Bond (CITA)

We have combined a particle based fluid dynamics code (SPH) with grid based magnetohydrodynamics and gravity solvers to develop a flexible numerical tool for exploring a wide variety of astrophysical problems in which MHD is important. With simulations of the intergalactic medium at z \simeq 3 we explore the role that gas flows play in amplifying seed magnetic fields of various sorts.
