Astronomy Research

Professors Batuski and Comins coordinate with graduate students to form the astronomy group. The group uses a network of Sun and Linux/Pentium workstations and an extensive set of software for research purposes, such as:

  • N-body and hydrodynamic modeling of disk galaxy dynamics
  • AIPS and IRAF data analysis packages (observational research)
  • Fortran, Pascal, and C++ programming
  • IDL, PGPLOT, SUNvision, and PHIGS graphics packages
