Project Description

TIARA (the Theoretical Institute for Advanced Research in Astrophysics) is our Theory Group in ASIAA. TIARA was originally established as a cooperative effort between Academia Sinica and the National Science Council (current Ministry of Science and Technology). Its mission is to provide an integrated, world-class program of research and education in theoretical astrophysics. Forefront research is performed on the formation and evolution of various structures in the universe. Since the structure formation is complex and nonlinear in itself, our central efforts are devoted to computational simulations and code development. Analytic studies also comprise an important part of our scientific activities in providing a firm physical basis. We further aim at not only taking advantage of the growing body of observational data, but also providing a theoretical basis on which observers are guided for observational strategies and for interpretation of newly taken data.
