Ron Taam

Ronald Taam’s primary research interests are in the area of astrophysical hydrodynamics of gas flows, close binary systems, accretion disks, nature of x-ray bursts, and in the area of stellar dynamics as related to the secular evolution of galaxies.  In particular, he studies the ignition and propagation of nuclear burning fronts in stars, the structure and evolution of accretion disks surrounding compact stars (stellar mass and supermassive black holes), the evolution of close double-star systems, and the formation and evolution of structures in galaxies.
