Welcome to the AstroBEAR Wiki

AstroBEAR is a parallelized hydrodynamic/MHD simulation code suitable for a variety of astrophysical problems. Derived from the BearCLAW package written by Sorin Mitran, AstroBEAR is designed for 2D and 3D adaptive mesh refinement (AMR), multiphysics simulations. Users write their own project modules by specifying initial conditions and continual processes (such as an inflow condition). In addition, AstroBEAR comes with a number of pre-built physical phenomena such as clumps and winds that can be loaded into a user module.
