Scientific Activity


The scientific research of R. Capuzzo-Dolcetta covers a large range of topics in theoretical and computational astrophysics.

At present R. Capuzzo-Dolcetta scientific activity is mainly devoted to:

  1. smooth particle hydrodynamics and N-body evolution, applied to the study of multi-phase, self- gravitating astrophysical systems;

  2. computational astrophysics;

  3. formation and evolution of Nuclear Star Clusters;

  4. super massive black holes in galaxies;

  5. dynamical evolution of globular cluster systems in elliptical galaxies, and resulting AGNs;

  6. dynamics of exoplanets around single or binary stars.

This is a list of his publication in Astronomy and Astrophysics. He has also written various papers in Applied Mathematics and Numerical Methods.
