Talk on the universe

2015-08-04 06:00

How did the universe come to look the way it does? Numerical cosmologists are trying to answer this by modelling the history of our universe using powerful supercomputers. The results have been sometimes surprising, often amazing, and always enlightening.

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (Aims) will hold a talk by Prof Romeel Davé at the Aims office, 6 Melrose Road, Muizenberg on Tuesday 4 August at 19:00. Entry is free.

Davé holds the SARChI Chair in Cosmology with Multi-wavelength Data, a research chair split between Aims, UWC and the SA Astronomical Observatory. Davé uses simulations on supercomputers to study the evolution of the universe
