Studying Galaxy Formation with Modern Cosmological SimulationsFamily friendly - adult with child image.

Numerical simulations have been playing an increasingly large role over the past two decades in developing our understanding of cosmology and galaxy formation. In this talk, Dr. Paul Torrey will outline the approach that is used to build cosmological simulation codes, identify areas of unique progress made in recent years, discuss some major outstanding questions, and explore the computational approaches and resources that are required.
