Magneticum Pathfinder: Evolution of the universe in unmatched precision

21 octubre 2015

The world’s most elaborate cosmological simulation of the evolution of our universe was recently completed by astrophysicists. For the first time, a hydrodynamic cosmological simulation is large enough to be directly compared with large-scale astronomical surveys. The most comprehensive simulation within the ‘Magneticum Pathfinder’ project pursues the development of a record number of 180 billion tiny spatial elements in a previously unreached spatial area of 12.5 billion light years.
