Computational Astrophysics and Cosmology

New Content ItemComputational Astrophysics and Cosmology unifies two distinct groups of disciplines: astronomy, planetary sciences, physics and cosmology and computational and information science. The combination of these disciplines leads to a wide range of topics which, from an astronomical point of view, cover all scales and a rich palette of statistics, physics and chemistry.

Revisit some of our posts from the SpringerOpen blog here:

  • Quantum security from small satellites: Shoebox sized satellites could be the key to fast-track development of space quantum communication - one of our authors describes a movement which looks into miniaturization and use of conventional off-the-shelf components, agile development, short iteration cycles, and cheap access to space.
  • How does Earth’s spacetime deformation affect quantum communications?: In a guest post, one of the authors Jan Kohlrus investigates relativitic effects to consider when setting up quantum communication systems.​​​​​​​
