Title: C^3: The New Computational Cosmology Center at LBL


In recent years astrophysics has undergone a renaissance, transforming from a data-starved to a data-driven science. A new generation of experiments - including the Planck and JDEM satellite missions - will gather data sets so massive that their analysis requires leading-edge high performance computing resources. Continuing their decade-long collaboration in this field, the Physics and Computational Research Divisions at LBNL have formed the Computational Cosmology Center. C^3 is a focused collaboration of astrophysicists and computational scientists to develop the tools, techniques and technologies to meet the analysis challenges posed by present and future cosmological data sets. We will give an overview of the science driving C^3's current activities, and present some of the highlights of the founding members' recent research.
