Title: Reconstructing the initial conditions to simulate the formation of the local universe
Date (JST): Wed, Oct 26, 2016, 15:30 - 17:00
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will describe a method that can be used to reconstruct the initial conditions of the local universe accurately. The method is applied to the SDSS volume. High-resolution simulations of the reconstructed initial conditions have been carried to recover of the formation histories and structures observed in the local universe. I will also describe how the results can be used to study the formation and structure of the local cosmic web and of galaxies that are embedded in it.
