Intro

Cueva Group is an initiative of the astrophysicist Sergio Miranda-Aranguren, who after finished his doctoral studies in the Universitat de València (Spain), and return to his natal country, decide to promote the study of the plasma physics in particular under the description of the magnetohydrodynamics framework.

Sergio Miranda-Aranguren completed his Undergraduate and Master's degrees in Physics at the National University of Colombia and did his Ph.D. studies at the University of Valencia (Spain). He has belonged to the "Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology" research groups of the National Astronomical Observatory of Colombia and the "Relativistic Astrophysics Group" in the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics of the University of Valencia.

His research line focuses on the physics of relativistic plasmas, especially in the study of annihilation and reconnection of magnetic fields. The reconnection processes in the field of astrophysics can give explanations, to the observations made of violent and explosive events, such as the Gamma-Ray Burst, the Solar flares and Relativistic Jets from black holes. These studies are carrying out using the Relativist Resistive Magnetohydrodynamics (RRMHD) framework, which matches with other of his interests, the development of numerical methods for this formulation.

You can see some of his recent works here.

Work

We made the study of relativistic plasma physics, under the framework of Magnetohydrodynamics, by means of computational experiments, using the computational tool, Cueva Code.
Cueva Code incorporates the most recent numerical methods to solve the equations of the RRMHD. As they are, the temporary integrator MIRK (Aloy M. A. and Cordero-Carrion I., 2016, JPCS, 719,012015) and the approximate flux solver HLLC (Miranda-Aranguren S., et al. 2018, MNRAS,476,1722), tools designed exclusively for RRMHD.

About

The first cueva group is conformed in 2019 by undergraduate physics students of the Universidad Distrital "Francisco José de Caldas" in Bogotá-Colombia. We participated in the VI Congreso Colombiano de Astronomía y Astrofísica (COCOA).

Alisson Morales, is a six-semester student in the physics degree. Her academic interest lies in the field of astronomy and astrophysics. She enjoy to play piano and guitar and sing.


Yenifer Castro, is a fifth-semester student in physics degree, her academic interests are the study of astronomy and meteorology. Her hobbies are painting art and design kinegrams.


Javier Adames, is a fifth-semester student of physics degree. His academic interest is the general relativity in the cosmological context, in particular, the study of galaxy formation and evolution. He enjoys to spend time with his daughter and read, furthermore about science, he delights read subjects about politics-economy, history, and psychoanalysis.


Tatiana Sanchez Castiblanco, is 20 years old and is a fifth-semester student of a physics degree. Her academic interests are focused on medical physics, a field in which she wants to make postgraduate studies. She likes to ride a bicycle, listen to bolero and ranchera music. He loves to read and watch movies of the romance and horror genre. She has a great social conscience and she believes that participating in science divulgation and research groups is paramount to generate and provide a positive social impact in new generations.


Hector Ivan Orozco, is a fifth-semester student. He loves math and physics in general and he is passionate about astronomy. His hobbies are play soccer, play video games, read and travel.


Iván José Páez, is 20 years old and a fifth-semester student in the physical degree. His academic interests are de biophysics, astronomy and science history. He is a culture lover, since a child has been tied to musical and dance groups. He believes that it is essential to promote in the new generations the love for folklore. One of his interests is to relate scientific knowledge and culture.


Michael Letrado, is a fifth-semester student of a physics degree. His academic interest is the application of general relativity in black holes descriptions and its implications in cosmological models. He thinks that scientific dissemination for children is social paramount importance. His hobbies are play soccer, play guitar, travel and read political social subjects of his country.
