COSMOS Publications, 2001-2003

Listed below is an almost complete list of publications by COSMOS consortium members for the three years 1st January 2001 to 31st December 2003. The criteria for inclusion is that the work entailed significant use of high performance computing resources either on the central COSMOS supercomputer or remote consortium serve (some papers from late 2003 may be missing).rs. Since its inception in 1997, well over 200 research papers have been written using COSMOS computing facilities, resources which would not otherwise be readily available to UK cosmologists.
