Simulation and Data Science Laboratory Astrophysics

The Sim Data Lab Astrophysics is a targeted research and support structure that provides an interface between the Supercomputer facilities in Jülich and the Astrophysics research communities.


Our tasks include the support of Data Science Projects and High Performance Computing Simulations for the Astrophysics Community. We support users in their research by

  • advising code choices for their scientific applications,
  • supporting the development and application of scalable methods,
  • development of an integrated application infrastructure for high performance computational astrophysics (HPCA),
  • supporting the development of data analysis tools,
  • initiation of collaborative projects for advancing high performance computational astrophysics and data science,
  • visualization of the obtained results

In addition, we host repositories of commonly used codes and data bases and offer workshops in above mentioned areas.
