Dark Matter Simulations

Dark Matter Numerical Simulations

15-17 September 2014

IPhT CEA/Saclay


This will be an informal meeting on Dark Matter numerical simulations. It will consist in a small series of lectures on basic aspects from experts in the field and then a few seminars on recent selected topics. A special attention will be put on guiding participants with a different background along their learning curve and on stimulating interactions among them.

This is the second of a series of tiny-workshops held in the context of the activities of the ERC Starting Grant project: 'NewDark: New Directions in Dark Matter Phenomenology at the TeV Scale'. Support from the ERC is acknowledged.
