Title: Simulating Early Structure and Galaxy Formation - The THESAN Project

Cosmological simulations of galaxy formation have evolved significantly over the last decade. In my talk I will describe recent efforts to model the large-scale distribution of galaxies with cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. The focus of the talk will be a discussion of our new simulation campaign, the THESAN project, to study the epoch of reionization and the early Universe.

In-person colloquia are usually preceded by espresso and ice cream at 1:45 pm outside room PSC 1150 and are followed by an informal reception at 5:15 pm in that room. Anyone interested in talking with the speaker, or being added to the colloquium announcement email list, should contact the colloquium organizer Dr. Leslie Sage. Lunch will normally be reserved for the speaker to talk to graduate students. Anyone asking a question during a talk is asked to raise their hand and be acknowledged before speaking. Contact Dr. Leslie Sage for details.
