Dr. Darren Reed, a post doc at University of Zurich presents at CSCS User Day his work on “Clues about the dark matter particle from the large-scale cosmic web of galaxies”. He also tries to answer the question “what is exactly dark matter?”.
CSCS is reporting on how supercomputers can explain why Homo neanderthalensis disappeared about 15,000 years ago. At that time modern humans, Homo sapiens, came to Europe and Homo neanderthalensis disappeared for good. Now the supercomputer is to assess which of the current hypotheses can explain their extinction. 20,000 to 200,000 years before our time, with […]
George Lake is professor for astrophysics at the University of Zurich (UZH). At his visit to the hpc-ch booth at SC11 we interviewed him about his research activities. George told us that at UZH there are different research groups working on dark matter, large scale structure of the universe and galaxy and clusters of galaxies. […]
We continue the series of videos about the CSCS User Day 2011 with the keynote presentation of Lucio Mayer, professor at the University of Zurich about “A new understanding of galaxy formation from the latest generation of supercomputer simulations“. Lucio Mayer presented his latest research work, in which he and his team succeeded for the […]
