Change of speaker; Prof Bower will now be giving a talk.

Prof Richard Bower from Durham University gives a talk on dark energy and simulating the universe – see the abstract below for more details.

Admission is free to CUPS members, or £2 otherwise. As always, wine and cheese will be served after the talk.

(Abstract:) In my talk I’ll describe how our understanding of the universe has developed from physical principles that can be tested here, on earth. This has lead to the realisation that Baryonic matter (“normal” matter) is a relatively minor constituent of the Universe. The great contributors to the energy budget of the Universe are Dark Energy and Dark Matter, and I will spend some of my time exploring what these might be. The ultimate test of our understanding of the Universe is to be able to re-create it, and I will finish by presenting some results from the Eagle simulation project, where we create a virtual Universe full of realistic stars and galaxies within the COSMA -V super-computer.
