Journal Club

The Cosmology group has journal club meetings on Wednesday at 12:00 in the Meeting Room. These are informal discussions about recent papers posted on the arXiv, led each week by a discussion leader who also chooses the paper(s). All are welcome! To volunteer to lead a discussion, please send an email to andrei.mesinger(at)

Numerics Meetings

Our group has regular, informal meeting on software, numerical methods, issues, and other technical things. The general idea is that someone presents something (software package or some method that the leader of the discussion discovered and think could be useful), followed by a discussion and/or questions.
