PhotonQ-Beauty on the Horizon of Complexity

Two emerging complexities, fusionning into beauty. The first one, the Dandelion Clock is from biology. The second one, the "Artificial Blue structure " is from "The Horizon Project". The biggest Large scale simulation of the UNIVERSE.

Une équipe de chercheurs français, sous la direction de Romain Teyssier, astrophysicien au CEA, a mené à terme, dans le cadre du "Projet Horizon", la plus grande simulation jamais réalisée de la formation des structures de l'Univers.

 

Here is a French speaking VIDEO describing the simulation results

 

L'accroissement prodigieux des moyens de calcul permet des avancées scientifiques toujours plus importantes. En astrophysique, la résolution des équations de la mécanique des fluides autogravitants à l'aide d'algorithmes toujours plus efficaces et sur des supercalculateurs toujours plus puissants permet de modéliser la formation des structures de l'univers. "Partant des “conditions initiales” de notre univers, que l'on peut observer directement sur le rayonnement fossile à 3 degrés K (1), il est possible de suivre les trajectoires individuelles d'un grand nombre de particules qui servent à décrire le fluide cosmologique"

The objective of the HORIZON Project is to federate numerical simulations activities with a program focussed on Galaxy and Large Scale Structure Formation. "For the first time, we have performed a simulation of half the observable universe, with enough resolution to describe a Milky Way-like galaxy with more than 100 dark matter particles."

 

Here is a French speaking VIDEO describing the simulation results

 

The main objectives are:

 

-Numerical study of galaxy formation in a cosmological framework

-Develop advanced techniques in parallel computing and in applied mathematics to model galaxy formation and predict their observational signatures, as a function of physical parameters

-Gather renowed experts in computational astrophysics, share their softwares and expertise, and optimize their access to national and international supercomputing facilities.

-Provide to the scientific community, and in particular to the AstroParticle, PNC and PNG communities (both observers and theoreticians), a friendly access to state-of-the-art numerical simulations
