Story Highlights

During the most recent Texascale Days, a team of researchers from UC Riverside, Carnegie Mellon University, UC Berkeley and the Flatiron Institute simulated the early history of the Universe at unprecedented resolution.

The simulation — which ran on the full Frontera system for 24 hours — included for the first time a statistical sample of high redshift supermassive black holes at sufficient resolution to follow their host galaxies.

The team separately used Frontera to train a machine learning based model that can combine high resolution simulations with large volume simulations, approximating a single simulation with a volume one thousand times greater than the individual runs.
