Computational Cosmology Center


In recent years astrophysics has undergone a renaissance, transforming from a data-starved to a data-driven science. A new generation of experiments will gather data sets so massive that their analysis will require the use of leading-edge, high performance computing resources. Continuing a decade-long collaboration in this field, the Computational Research and Physics Divisions at LBNL have formed the Computational Cosmology Center.

C3 is a focused collaboration of astrophysicists and computational scientists whose goals are to develop the tools, techniques and technologies to meet the analysis challenges posed by present and future cosmological data sets.

Group Leader: Peter Nugent
