Abstract

In order to make quantitative predictions from state-of-the-art numerical models and to interpret the new exciting observational results, we need accurate ground-breaking computational simulations that include advanced numerical techniques together with detailed chemistry and microphysics. The latter includes a large number of complex physical processes (cooling, heating, dust, opacity, and many others) and it is also tightly related to the chemical evolution, which is poorly understood in realistic models and represents one of the critical computational bottlenecks of current simulations. In this talk I will discuss some of the environments where microphysics plays a crucial role, as for example molecular clouds, low-metallicty star-forming regions, planetary atmospheres, and protoplanetary disks
