Dark matter distribution of GIF boxes of four different cosmologies (z=3, 2, 1, and
The VIRGO project consists of four different cosmological models which were simulated in
large boxes. The simulations contain 17-million particles each and represent different
cosmological models. The calculations were done by the parallel version of AP3M N-body code
on two large Cray T3D parallel supercomputers at the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Center and
at the Computing Centre of the Max Planck Society in Garching.
Projected mass distributions in slices of 3 different redshifts for each model. Thus
this picture shows the time evolution of structures along the horizontal sequence in each
model as well as the model difference at the same epoch along the vertical sequence.
The initial paper for “The VIRGO Project” has been published as Jenkins
et al. 1998. For more information please visit MPA’s project description page or contact Adrian Jenkins.
