VIRGO: Cosmological N-Body Simulations

The VIRGO Consortium is an international grouping of scientists carrying out supercomputer simulations of the formation of galaxies, galaxy clusters, large-scale structure, and of the evolution of the intergalactic medium. Although most of the consortium members are British, there are important nodes in Canada and the United States as well as Germany at the MPA. The primary platforms used by the consortium are at the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre and at the Computing Center of the Max Planck Society in Garching. Further information about VIRGO can be found at the main UK site in Durham.
