Millennium - Millennium-II Simulation

Program Description: The Millenium and Millenium-II simulations model the joint evolution of quasars, galaxies and their large-scale distribution; the simulations can be viewed as movies, providing a three dimensional perspective on the data. The cold dark matter model has become the leading theoretical paradigm for the formation of structure in the Universe. Together with the theory of cosmic inflation, this model makes a clear prediction for the initial conditions for structure formation and predicts that structures grow hierarchically through gravitational instability. Testing this model requires that the precise measurements delivered by galaxy surveys can be compared to robust and equally precise theoretical calculations. Millenium-II provides a model to accomplish this comparison.
