Abstract

The aim of the project is to compute constraints on cosmological and astrophysical model parameters based on observational astronomical data, forecast expected data and parameter constraints from future observations, as well as perform and analyse output from large-scale numerical simulations to build new semi-analytical models of cosmological astrophysics. A combination of well-established public and custom state-of-the-art computer codes will be employed.
