The Theoretical Institute for Advanced Research in Astrophysics (TIARA) was established in 2004 to provide an integrated program of research and education in theoretical astrophysics. The concept of TIARA was developed to take advantage of the growing body of observational data underlying the origin and evolution of stars and planets, of compact objects, and galaxies in the universe that is being gathered by the astronomical community in Taiwan and elsewhere. TIARA during the first 10 years, had been based at the National Tsing Hua University (NTHU). Since 2013, TIARA is in ASIAA based at the National Taiwan University (NTU). TIARA aims to facilitate the efforts of researchers and the training of future theoretical astrophysicists and astronomers throughout Taiwan and Asia and to integrate the results of the research into the undergraduate and graduate teaching programs at Taiwan's universities and academic institutions.

Since coming into existence, TIARA has hosted a winter/summer school and 2-4 workshops or topical programs of various scales each year. The astrophysicists and astronomers visiting Taiwan through its active visitors program, workshops, and schools, bring forefront research in astronomy and astrophysics to both the observational and theoretical groups in the astronomical institutes, physics departments, and ASIAA in Taiwan. Since its establishment, TIARA has become one of the most active theoretical astrophysics institutes in Asia.

Together with the forefront observational facilities being developed by ASIAA, the TIARA programs stimulate graduate students’ interest in astronomy at the universities and academic institutions, thus building and maintaining the human resources for future initiatives in theoretical and observational astronomy.

TIARA continues to enhance its high performance computation capability via both algorithm and hardware developments to meet the growing needs of theorists and simulators to address critical scientific questions. To meet the demands on microphysics and numerical modeling from the vast amount of information revealed in the era of large telescopes, numerical codes and simulations involving hydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, radiation hydrodynamics, astrochemistry, and radiation transfer are being developed locally through the CHARMS program. The comparison of the latest observations and the latest theories in a quantitative manner is an important component of TIARA activities.
