Research & Activities


The goal of this project is to build a model with sufficient resolution and appropriate physical processes that can be directly compared with observations at each level, and to compare the model with the observations to understand the linkage between the levels. Specifically, we have set up the following 4 Sub-projects.

  • Sub-project A: Revealing the Formation History of the Universe with Large-scale Simulations and Astronomical Big Data
  • Sub-project B: From Clouds to Stars and Planets: Toward a Unified Formation Scenario
  • Sub-project C: High-energy Astrophysical Phenomena in Black Holes and Supernovae
  • Sub-project D: Elucidation of Solar and Planetary Dynamics and Evolution

Sub-project A deals with the large-scale structure of the universe and the formation of galaxies and star clusters.

Sub-project B deals with star formation and planet formation.

Sub-project C deals with high-energy phenomena such as black hole accretion disks and supernova explosion playing important roles in star formation and galaxy evolution.

Sub-project D deals with the evolution of the formed planets, the evolution of the surface environment, the evolution of stars including the Sun, and their activity phenomena and their effects on the planetary environment.
