Visualisations of gravitational wave processes

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

This is a series of visualisations of simulation results created using CSC resources and the VisIt software. These were developed for research purposes, as well as visualisation during scientific talks, and for outreach. They all show processes which might have produced observable quantities of gravitational waves in the early universe.
