Numerical simulations

New Horizon simulation

Presentation of the project

Responsable : Christophe PICHON




The strength of IAP in numerical simulation reside in its pluridisciplinarity centered on three scientific themes: a broad component on numerical cosmology and galaxy formation, and two others on high energy astrophysics and exoplanets and their environment.

Each theme is split into three overlapping categories:

1. Developing new numerical schemes and parallel programming

2. post-processing and generation of virtual observations

3. Visualisation

IAP has access to national ressources (

  • CINES,
  • GENCI) to carry out state-of-the-art simulations and to the cluster Beyond for post-processing
