The Turbulent Interstellar Medium: Insights and Questions from Numerical Models

Preprint English OPEN
Mac Low, Mordecai-Mark; de Avillez, Miguel A.; Korpi, Maarit J.;

"The purpose of numerical models is not numbers but insight." (Hamming) In the spirit of this adage, and of Don Cox's approach to scientific speaking, we discuss the questions that the latest generation of numerical models of the interstellar medium raise, at least for ... View more
