I was introduced to research in astrophysics in the summer of 2011 when I went to IISER Kolkata for a summer project in Solar Physics, under the guidance of Dr. Dibyendu Nandi. He is one of the nicest person I have known.

My project was to develop a Surface Magnetic Flux Transport code that would simulate the evolution of radial magnetic field on the surface of the Sun.

Dr. Nandi, has himself worked on Solar Dynamo code. On combining the Dynamo code with the surface flux transport code, we will have a better understanding of the star nearest to us. And in the future, we can hope to extrapolate these fields to and simulate the interplanetary magnetic field in the Solar System.

The purpose of this blog is to post the recent advances in the development of the Surface flux transport code.

  1. good cause and nice work! good going... just wondering about IPR and slight secrecy of work.
