CRA Distinguished Lecture: Putting the Universe on a Computer

Take a break from studying and come listen to Prof. Yoshida describe the history of the universe over 13 billion years since the Big Bang. He will use the visual results from recent state-of-the-art computer simulations that aid our understanding on how astronomical objects such as stars, galaxies, and black holes form in an expanding universe. He will explore prospects for future high-performance computing using exascale computers.
