About iADD

Welcome to the Illinois Astrophysical Dynamics Demos! This is an educational web site dedicated to the use of simulations to teach astrophysics. The site is organized around several areas that are important in modern astronomy. Each offers visualizations of precomputed simulations for beginners and the opportunity to run your own simulations for the adventurous. Each area also features a description of the science involved in the simulations. One of our plans is to build lessons around the simulations hosted here that can be used in secondary and college-level coursework.

iADD is descended from the former Digital Demo Room at Illinois run by Prof. Charles Gammie's group.

Getting started

You can browse articles and precomputed simulations as a guest, but to explore more advanced features of the site you will need to register. It's free and will give you access to our online simulation tools and other features.
