Want to simulate some other universes with me? Looking for life in a (simulated) cosmos? Desperate to test some multiverse theories? You too could make classy videos like this!

Using supercomputer simulations of galaxy formation, we will investigate the effect of fundamental cosmological parameters on structure in the universe. We will model the formation of galaxies in lumpier and smoother sub-universes, and universes with different amounts of dark matter. Our group has previously explored the effect of the cosmological constant (arxiv.org/abs/1801.08781), and will extend and expand this approach, working with a world-leading galaxy formation code.
