Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cosmology@Home is a BOINC distributed computing project, run at the Departments of Astronomy and Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The goal of Cosmology@Home is to search for the model that best describes our Universe and to find the range of models that agree with the available astronomical and particle physics data. The models generated by Cosmology@home can be compared to measurements of the universe's expansion speed from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as fluctuations in the cosmic background radiation as measured by the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe.show more
