This book contains all the oral and poster sessions presented at the 'Numerical Astrophysics 1998' symposium held in Tokyo on March 10-13, 1998. It covers a wide variety of research fields, from the large-scale structure of the Universe to planetary systems. Astrophysics employing all kinds of supercomputers, such as massive-parallel computers, parallel vector machines, and special-purpose computers, are included. Animations and full-color graphics based on computer simulations are presented in an accompanying CD-ROM, which also contains documents written in HTML for brief explanations. Recent progress in numerical methods, remote data analysis, and special-purpose computers are also reviewed. This book is suitable for researchers and graduate students in astronomy/astrophysics, who want an overview of the present research fronts based on supercomputing.
