We present an extension of our recently developed Wasserstein optimized model to emulate accurate high-resolution (HR) features from computationally cheaper low-resolution (LR) cosmological simulations. Our deep physical modelling technique relies on restricted neural networks to perform a mapping of the distribution of the LR cosmic density field to the space of the HR small-scale structures. We constrain our network using a single triplet of HR initial conditions and the corresponding LR…

Towards Universal Cosmological Emulators with Generative Adversarial Networks
This work trains a GAN to produce both weak lensing convergence maps and dark matter overdensity field data for multiple redshifts, cosmological parameters and modified gravity models, and applies the technique of latent space interpolation to control which outputs the algorithm produces.
AI-assisted superresolution cosmological simulations
A deep neural network is built to enhance low-resolution dark-matter simulations, generating superresolution realizations that agree remarkably well with authentic high-resolution counterparts on their statistical properties and are orders-of-magnitude faster.
Super-resolving Dark Matter Halos using Generative Deep Learning
This work uses a variation of U-Net with a conditional Generative Adversarial Network (GAN), generating output that visually and statistically matches the high resolution target extremely well, suggesting that the method can be used to create high resolution density output over Gpc/h box-sizes from low resolution simulations with negligible computational costs.

Dimensionless machine learning: Imposing exact units equivariance
The approach can be used to impose units equivariance across a broad range of machine learning methods which are equivariant to rotations and other groups and discusses the in-sample and out-of-sample prediction accuracy gains one can obtain in contexts like symbolic regression and emulation, where symmetry is important.

A fast particle-mesh simulation of non-linear cosmological structure formation with massive neutrinos
Quasi-N-body simulations, such as FastPM, provide a fast way to simulate cosmological structure formation, but have yet to adequately include the effects of massive neutrinos. We present a method to


Learning neutrino effects in Cosmology with Convolutional Neural Networks
This work proposes a new method, based on a deep learning network (U-Net), to quickly generate simulations with massive neutrinos from standard $\Lambda$CDM simulations without neutrino, and concludes that the method accurately reproduces the 3-dimensional spatial distribution of matter down to non-linear scales.
From Dark Matter to Galaxies with Convolutional Networks
This paper proposes to use deep learning to establish a mapping between the 3D galaxy distribution in hydrodynamic simulations and its underlying dark matter distribution, and develops a two-phase convolutional neural network architecture to generate fast galaxy catalogues.

We perform an analysis of the three-dimensional cosmic matter density field traced by galaxies of the SDSS-III/BOSS galaxy sample. The systematic-free nature of this analysis is confirmed by two
Cosmological N-body simulations: a challenge for scalable generative models
A scalable GAN approach for training a generator of N-body three-dimensional cubes, which relies on splitting the generation of the high-dimensional data into smaller parts, and using a multi-scale approach that efficiently captures global image features that might otherwise be lost in the splitting process.
