These are the court cases of overseas convention on Numerical As trophysics 1998 (NAP98), held at nationwide Olympic Memorial formative years Cen ter, in Tokyo, Japan within the interval of March 10 - thirteen, 1998, and hosted by way of the nationwide Astronomical Observatory, Japan (NAOJ). within the final decade numerical simulations have grown up as a big software for astrophysics. Numerical simulations supply us worthwhile informa tion on complicated structures and actual procedures lower than severe stipulations which are neither discovered by means of experiments nor at once saw. tremendous pcs and precise objective desktops may match as very huge telescopes and targeted goal telescopes for theoretical astrophysics, respectively. Nu merical astrophysics ranks with different tool-oriented astronomy comparable to ra dio astronomy, infrared astronomy, ultraviolet astronomy, X-ray astronomy, and ')'-ray astronomy. This convention, NAP98, was once deliberate to discover fresh advances in astrophysics aided through numerical simulations. the topics of the confer ence incorporated the large-scale constitution formation, galaxy formation and evolution, megastar and planets formation, accretion disks, jets, gravitational wave emission, and plasma physics. NAP98 had additionally periods on numerical tools and computing device technological know-how. The convention was once attended via 184 sci entists from 21 international locations. We loved very good talks, posters, movies, and discussions: there are forty oral shows, ninety six posters and sixteen video pre sentations. we are hoping that those lawsuits and accompanying CD-ROM replay the pleasant yet inspiring surroundings of the conference.
