MUSIC is a computer program to generate nested grid initial conditions for high-resolution “zoom” cosmological simulations. A detailed description of the algorithms can be found in Hahn & Abel (2011). You can download the user’s guide here. Please consider joining the user mailing list.

DASH is a library that contains thousands of N-body simulations following the dynamical evolution of a dark matter subhalo in a host halo potential as described in Ogiya et al. 2019. The DASH library is freely accessible and comes with a Python notebook that implements a pre-trained (machine learned) model of the data.
Here are some of our visualisation highlights… More in progress…
This movie shows the evolution of the gas during the formation of a very massive galaxy cluster from the RHAPSODY-G simulations. The gas density is shown in gray colors with the gas temperature overlaid in orange. The abundance and properties of these massive systems contain a wealth of information about the physics and cosmology of our Universe. The image is 17 Mpc/h wide, projection depth is 5 Mpc/h.

This movie shows the formation of the cosmic web of dark matter from random fluctuations in the early universe. The intricate network of filaments hosts dark matter halos, the most massive of them are rendered in bright yellow hinting at the galaxies they are thought to host in the LCDM cosmological model. Visualization by Ralf Kaehler, Carter Emmart, Tom Abel for AMNH planetarium show “The Dark Universe”. Simulation: Tom Abel, Oliver Hahn

MUSIC - (MUlti-Scale-Initial-Conditions)
is a computer program to generate nested grid initial conditions for high-resolution "zoom" cosmological simulations. MUSIC currently has the following features:
- Supports output for many cosmological simulation codes via plugins: RAMSES, ENZO, Gadget-2/3, Arepo, ART, Pkdgrav/Gasoline and NyX are currently supported. New codes can be added easily.
- Support for first (1LPT) and second order (2LPT) Lagrangian perturbation theory
- Pluggable transfer functions, currently CAMB, Eisenstein&Hu, BBKS, Warm Dark Matter variants. Distinct baryon+CDM fields are possible.
- Minimum bounding ellipsoid and convex hull shaped high-res regions supported with most codes optimizing the high-resolution volume. supports refinement mask generation for RAMSES.
- Parallelized with OpenMP
Requires FFTW (v2 or v3), GSL (and HDF5 for output for some codes)

You can get the data and find a list of relevant papers and contact email addresses below.
Last update on May 9th, 2019:
1) Models of xc=1.16 and eta=0.9 for 121 pairs of ch-cs are included in ch*/cs*/xc6/eta9
so that the total number of tidal stripping simulations is increased to 2253.
2) Results of isolated subhalo simulations are also available in iso/cs*.
We kindly ask that any paper that uses data from the library cites the DASH paper, Ogiya et al., MNRAS, 485, 189 (arXiv:1901.08601).
