Mitchell C. Begelman

My research in theoretical astrophysics includes studies of astrophysical gas dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, and radiative transfer theory as applied to a broad range of astrophysical phenomena. These include active galaxies and quasars, compact objects, star formation, galaxy formation, and dynamics and evolution of dense stellar systems.
