"Cosmological Simulation" presented by Volker Springel in PASCOS 2011 Conference, Cambridge, July 2011. http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/research/gr/workshops/PASCOS/2011/presentations/Springel-pascos2011.pdf"Predictions from N-body simulations: Abundance of objects (as a function of mass and time). Their spatial distribution. Internal structure of halos (e.g. density profiles, spin). Mean formation epochs. Merger rates. Detailed dark matter distribution on large and fairly small scales. Galaxy formation models. Gravitational lensing. Baryonic acoustic oscillations in the matter distribution. Integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect. Dark matter annihilation rate. Morphology of large-scale structure ("cosmic web"). Etc."
