Astrophysics Simulations

Physical interpretation of our survey data requires theory-based models. We develop and perform N-body and hydrodynamical simulations, including gravity, general relativity, and radiation feedback to support our observational efforts in compact objects, galaxy evolution, structure formation, the reionization epoch, and cosmology. These simulations require local high-performance computing capabilities (25,000 cores available across the DISCnet partners), as well as national and international facilities via DiRAC and PRACE.
