Title: Tests of an MHD code
Author: Usadi, Adam Keith
Advisor: Voigt, Gerd-Hannes
Degree: Master of Science thesis
Abstract: A magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) computer simulation code is tested for numerical accuracy and physical plausibility. Comparisons are made between numerical results and simple linear theory. The adverse affects of numerical dispersion and diffusion are analyzed. Applications for both an Earth-like and pole-on magnetospheric simulation are investigated.
