Title: Reconstructing the Initial Conditions to Simulate the Formation of the Local Universe 

Speaker: Prof. Houjun Mo (莫厚俊),Tsinghua/UMass Amherst 

Location: Lecture Hall, 3rd floor 

Date & Time: 3 PM, Nov. 17 (Thursday) 

Abstract: 

I will describe a method that can be used to reconstruct the initial conditions of the local universe accurately. The method is applied to the SDSS volume. High-resolution simulations of the reconstructed initial conditions have been carried to recover of the formation histories and structures observed in the local universe. I will also describe how the results can be used to study the formation and structure of the local cosmic web and of galaxies that are embedded in it.
