Methodologies: Physics-Specific Methods

R. Paul Drake

Professor Emeritus, Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering


Physics, Applied Physics

Prof. Drake has played a leading role in the development of two related fields of inquiry — High-Energy-Density Physics (HEDP) and High-Energy-Density Laboratory Astrophysics (HEDLA). This has grown from his scientific work, encompassing experiment, theory, and simulation in several topical areas.┬áHis work at Michigan, since 1996, has emphasized hydrodynamics and radiation hydrodynamics with an emphasis on connections to supernovae and other applications to astrophysics.
