This graph contains a lot of hidden information. It shows the past doubling times (DT) for each day. Small DT numbers, fast infection rates. The larger the DT number, the better.Download Doubling Times

The starting point of my research is the exciting question of how the simple, beginnings of the big-bang have given rise to today's highly complex universe.
Many physical processes in the universe are highly non-linear and complex. We try to reconstruct the development of the universe from the beginnings in the Big Bang to the origin of life.
In addition to the theoretical interpretation of observations, a deep understanding of the dynamic universe also requires detailed numerical simulations, coupled with sophisticated data analysis and visualization.
Prof. Dr. Andreas Burkert is a university lecturer at the Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) in Munich and heads the chair for theoretical and numerical astrophysics.
He researches the evolution of the universe, from the Big Bang to the present day, the nature of dark matter, and the formation of galaxies, stars and planets.
He would like to understand how the simple conditions of the Big Bang made it possible to develop the complex universe observable today to the point of life and whether there is life elsewhere in space.
Modern astrophysics is changing our worldview and our relationship to the earth and the universe. In these events, the fascinating knowledge of astrophysics is presented in a way that is understandable to everyone.All Events
