Abstract

In this lecture we look at the progress that has been made in studying jets with the aid of large-scale simulations. With modern computational resources and techniques it is now possible to simulate jets with reasonable resolution to a realistic age. This opens the possibility of finding out what effects a stellar jet has on its surroundings, as well as studying the stability of these jets even taking account of sophisticated chemistry occurring in the flows.
