Topological defects in space may have developed fractions of a second after the Big Bang. Simulations of these wormlike entities and a comparison of the simulations with cosmic background radiation measurements by the Planck satellite should confirm their existence. by Simone Ulmer, CSCS When Martin Kunz, a professor in the Cosmology Group » at the University of [...]
During CSCS User Day, PhD student David Daverio in the Geneva cosmology group of Martin Kunz at University of Geneva presented his work on “Cosmic strings simulation”. David also gave a very interesting talk on his work attempting to clarify to the audience what are cosmic strings and how to simulate them on Monte Rosa.
We continue our series of poster presentations at CSCS User Day 2011 with Dr. Matthias Hempel, post-doc researcher at the University of Basel in the group of Professor Matthias Liebendoerfer presenting his poster on “Stellar explosions, nuclear physics and multiple dimensions”. Dr. Jiri Mareda is leading the group of Computational Chemistry in the Department [...]
