Computing the Universe

SESSION: Big Science, Big Data I

EVENT TYPE: Masterworks

TIME: 10:30AM - 11:15AM

SESSION CHAIR: David Halstead

Presenter(s):Salman Habib


The search for understanding the ultimate nature of the universe and our place within it is older than recorded history. But the emergence of a compelling, scientifically valid, picture of the universe and its evolution, dates to less than a century ago. Observations performed within the past two decades have set cosmology on a tantalizing course. They reveal a mysterious universe, remarkable -- paradoxically -- both for the extent to which it can be understood and the extent to which it cannot. The leap in our ability to carry out wide and deep observations of the sky rests on the same solid-state technology that drives the development of supercomputing. The interpretation of cosmological surveys and understanding of much of the underlying astrophysics rely heavily on high-fidelity simulations of the observable universe. I will discuss the current status of computational cosmology and the directions in which it is headed.
