B..2 Expanding SN bubble hits molecular cloud


Perform hydrodynamics simulations in 2D and 3D where an expanding supernova bubble (classical Sedov problem) collides with a slowly moving interstellar molecular cloud (a region with higher density in pressure-equilibrium with its environment).

Physical questions behind the experiments:

In detail:

Option 1 (3 more points): radiation-transport as post-processing step

Option 2 (alternative to option 1: 3 more points): MPI version
