We run high resolution hydrodynamical simulations to investigate the dynamics of gas in clusters of galaxies and the intergalactic medium.
Galaxy Cluster Surveys
Searching for and characterising clusters of galaxies - the most massive objects in the Universe.
Exploring the cosmological perturbations that lead to the large-scale structure, gravitational waves and magnetic fields in the Universe.
Resolving pulsation modes in hot sub-dwarf and white dwarfs to model their evolution and internal structure. We are also searching for brown dwarf planetary companions through study of evolved eclipsing binaries and pulsating stars.
Combining large datasets taken at multiple wavelengths, to maximise our understanding of the Universe.

The Astronomy and Cosmology group at UWC is investing in growth and has been joined by Roy Maartens, supported by a SKA Research Chair and Matt Jarvis who holds an SKA visiting research professorship. Research is focused on galaxy evolution and cosmology and includes theory, simulatio
The fifth of the biennial conferences devoted to â€œHot subdwarf stars and related objectsâ€ is to be held 25-29 July 2011, in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Focus areas of past meetings have included the atmospheres, internal structure and evolution of hot subdwarfs, population synthes
