Instead, we sliced the space into 256 x 256 x 256 cubical areas and counted the number of particules in each area. The result are 3D histograms, where the number of particles is a proxy for matter density.</p>\n\n<p>If you work with this dataset, you might be interested in this code as well <a href=\"\"></a></p>\n\n<p>Note that a the same Nbody simulation were used in this paper, but with a different way of building the histogram.<br>\n<strong>Fast Cosmic Web Simulations with Generative Adversarial Networks</strong><br>\n<em>Andres C Rodriguez, Tomasz Kacprzak, Aurelien Lucchi, Adam Amara, Raphael Sgier, Janis Fluri, Thomas Hofmann, Alexandre R&eacute;fr&eacute;gier</em><br>\n<a href=\"\"></a></p>\n\n<p><br>\nN-body simulation evolves a cosmological matter distribution over time, starting from soon after the big bang.<br>\nIt represents matter density distribution as a finite set of massive particles, typically order of trillions.<br>\nThe positions of these particles are modified due to gravitational forces and expansion of the cosmological volume due to cosmic acceleration.<br>\nN-body simulations use periodic boundary condition, where particles leaving the volume on one face enter it back from the opposite side.</p>\n\n<p>## Short description of the data generation from Rordiguez et al. 2018:</p>\n\n<p>We created N-body simulations of cosmic structures in boxes of size 100 Mpc and 500 Mpc with 512^3 and 1,024^3 particles respectively.<br>\nWe used L-PICOLA [21] to create 10 and 30 independent simulation boxes for both box sizes.<br>\nThe cosmological model used was &Lambda;CDM (Cold Dark Matter) with Hubble constant H0 = 100, h = 70 km s&minus;1 Mpc&minus;1,<br>\ndark energy density Omega_Lambda = 0.72 and matter density Omega_m = 0.28.<br>\nWe used the particle distribution at redshift z = 0.</p>\n\n<p><br>\nFor additional information, please check the</p>",
