Oort Lecture 2015
Cosmic origins: everything from nothing is the title of this years Oort lecture by Prof. Carlos Frenk. He s one of the originators of the Cold Dark Matter theory for the origin of galaxies and cosmic structures in the Universe. He has done pioneering work on the development of large computer simulations recreating the growth and evolution of cosmic structures. Read more
