Abstract

Welcome to the website of the "8th KIAS workshop on Cosmology and Structure Formation", hosted by the Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS). The distribution of matter in the Universe is a powerful probe of cosmology. By measuring the large-scale structure of the cosmic web we can extract information regarding the initial conditions, evolution and composition of the Universe. By measuring the galaxy distribution on small scales, we can address important questions regarding galaxy formation and evolution. The observation of large-scale structure has made significant progress in recent years, and upcoming surveys will provide unprecedented volumes of data. Extracting meaningful information from this data is a challenge to theoretical and numerical astrophysicists. Over the past few decades numerical simulations and theoretical modeling have made rapid advances in our understanding of the complex non-linear phenomena of gravitational collapse and fluid dynamics. The field currently stands at the threshold of a new era of precision cosmology.
