Research Summary

Frazer specialises in the theory of the formation of structure in the Universe. In particular he models the evolution of clusters of galaxies using some of the worlds largest parallel supercomputers.… read more

Current Research

Frazer specialises in the theory of the formation of structure in the Universe. In particular he models the evolution of clusters of galaxies using some of the worlds largest parallel supercomputers. He also has interests in X-ray emission from clusters and the feedback of energy due to supernovae explosions. For further details see: Astrophysical simulation at Nottingham
