The Dark Sky Simulations are an ongoing series of cosmological N-body simulations designed to provide a quantitative and accessible model of the evolution of the large-scale Universe. Such models are essential for many aspects of the study of dark matter and dark energy, since we lack a sufficiently accurate analytic model of non-linear gravitational clustering. In July 2014, we made available to the general community our early data release, consisting of over 55 Terabytes of simulation data… 
The Q Continuum Simulation: Harnessing the Power of GPU Accelerated Supercomputers
Modeling large-scale sky survey observations is a key driver for the continuing development of high resolution, large-volume, cosmological simulations. We report the first results from the 'Q
The illustris simulation: Public data release
TLDR
The full public release of all data from the Illustris simulation project is presented, including the flagship Illustris-1 run, and a comprehensive, web-based API which allows programmatic access to search and data processing tasks is released.
Cosmic Large-Scale Structure in the IllustrisTNG Simulations
We have finished two new, extremely large hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy formation that significantly advance the state of the art in cosmology. Together with accompanying dark matter only
Cosmological neutrino simulations at extreme scale
Constraining neutrino mass remains an elusive challenge in modern physics. Precision measurements are expected from several upcoming cosmological probes of large-scale structure. Achieving this goal
The Aemulus Project. I. Numerical Simulations for Precision Cosmology
The rapidly growing statistical precision of galaxy surveys has lead to a need for ever-more precise predictions of the observables used to constrain cosmological and galaxy formation models. The
Extragalactic Searches for Dark Matter Annihilation
We are at the dawn of a data-driven era in astrophysics and cosmology. A large number of ongoing and forthcoming experiments combined with an increasingly open approach to data availability offer
ICE-COLA: fast simulations for weak lensing observables
Approximate methods to full N-body simulations provide a fast and accurate solution to the development of mock catalogues for the modeling of galaxy clustering observables. In this paper we extend
ICE-COLA: towards fast and accurate synthetic galaxy catalogues optimizing a quasi-N-body method
Next generation galaxy surveys demand the development of massive ensembles of galaxy mocks to model the observables and their covariances, what is computationally prohibitive using $N$-body
Approximate methods for the generation of dark matter halo catalogs in the age of precision cosmology
Precision cosmology has recently triggered new attention on the topic of approximate methods for the clustering of matter on large scales, whose foundations date back to the period from the late
Covariance matrices for variance-suppressed simulations
Cosmological N-body simulations provide numerical predictions of the structure of the universe against which to compare data from ongoing and future surveys. The growing volume of the surveyed

Numerical simulations of the dark universe: State of the art and the next decade
ABSTRACT We present a review of the current state of the art of cosmological dark matter simulations, with particular emphasis on the implications for dark matter detection efforts and studies of
Evolution of Structure in Cold Dark Matter Universes
We present an analysis of the clustering evolution of dark matter in four cold dark matter (CDM) cosmologies. We use a suite of high-resolution, 17 million particle, N-body simulations that sample
Statistics of extreme objects in the Juropa Hubble Volume simulation
We present the first results from the JUropa huBbLE volumE (Ju bilee) project, based on the output from a large N-body, dark matter-only cosmological simulation with a volume of V = (6 h −1 Gpc) 3 ,
The mass function of dark matter haloes
We combine data from a number of N-body simulations to predict the abundance of dark haloes in cold dark matter (CDM) universes over more than four orders of magnitude in mass. A comparison of
THE COYOTE UNIVERSE EXTENDED: PRECISION EMULATION OF THE MATTER POWER SPECTRUM
Modern sky surveys are returning precision measurements of cosmological statistics such as weak lensing shear correlations, the distribution of galaxies, and cluster abundance. To fully exploit these
DEUS Full Observable {\Lambda}CDM Universe Simulation: the numerical challenge
We have performed the first-ever numerical N- body simulation of the full observable universe (DEUS "Dark Energy Universe Simulation" FUR "Full Universe Run"). This has evolved 550 billion particles
THE NEW HORIZON RUN COSMOLOGICAL N-BODY SIMULATIONS
We present two large cosmological N-body simulations, called Horizon Run 2 (HR2) and Horizon Run 3 (HR3), made using 6000 3 = 216 billions and 7210 3 = 374 billion particles, spanning a volume of
DARK MATTER HALOS IN THE STANDARD COSMOLOGICAL MODEL: RESULTS FROM THE BOLSHOI SIMULATION
Lambda Cold Dark Matter (?CDM) is now the standard theory of structure formation in the universe. We present the first results from the new Bolshoi dissipationless cosmological ?CDM simulation that
MASS FUNCTION PREDICTIONS BEYOND ΛCDM
The statistics of dark matter halos is an essential component of precision cosmology. The mass distribution of halos, as specified by the halo mass function, is a key input for several cosmological
Observational probes of cosmic acceleration
The accelerating expansion of the universe is the most surprising cosmological discovery in many decades, implying that the universe is dominated by some form of “dark energy” with exotic physical
