Research Subject

The study of the formation and evolution of galaxies and star clusters
using large-scale numerical simulations

Current Research

Galaxies and star clusters are gravitationally bound systems that
consist of stars, gas, and dark matters. They dynamically evolve in
millions or billions of years. In order to understand such long-time
evolution of galaxies and star clusters, we need to perform numerical
simulations of them and to “observe” the results. We investigate the
formation and evolution of galaxies and star clusters by performing
large-scale simulations using supercomputers. We also develop new
methods for novel simulations.
