Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The goal of this unprecedented large scale numerical project is to run state-of-the-art cosmological simulations of galaxy formation with two different numerical techniques: the particle based code GADGET-2 and the Eulerian AMR code RAMSES, starting from the same initial conditions. Both codes are fully parallel with MPI and can make efficient use of thousands of processors of the Marenostrum Supercomputer in Barcelona, where these two numerical experiments are being run.
