Speaker: Elena Hernandez Martinez (CCA/LMU)Title: Simulating our Universe. How and Why? 

May 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Date: May 31, 2024

Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Location: Sessler Conference Room – 50A-5132 [Hybrid and In-Person]

Speaker:  Elena Hernandez Martinez (CCA/LMU)

Title: Simulating our Universe. How and Why? 

Abstract: We will present SLOW, the simulated cosmic volume (500 Mpc/h) that features the most extensive collection of Local Universe Galaxy Clusters ever replicated, accurately set within the appropriate large-scale framework. We will show current predictions about these structures based on our simulated results and compare them with observational data. Additionally, the discussion will cover how these simulations open new avenues for research in galaxy cluster and cosmology studies.
