Computation and Data Initiative

The TAP Computation and Data Initiative (CDI) brings together computation and data scientists with astrophysicists to push the forefront of and accelerate discovery in theoretical astrophysics.  The Initiative provides a platform for researchers from different disciplines to collaborate, share resources, develop new methods, and apply them to important problems.  It also trains students to become the new generation of “computation native” scientists.  Key projects supported by the CDI include uncovering the detailed plasma physics around black holes and testing Einstein’s general theory of relativity by general relativistic simulations and the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), as well as understanding AGN variability and feedback through cosmological simulations and the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST).
