  • We are making available on the WWW a selection of the archived data from N-body simulations carried out by the Virgo consortium and related groups. This currently includes: (i) time-slice, lightcone and cluster data from the two $10^9$-particle Hubble volume simulations described by Evrard 1998; (ii) time-slice data from simulations of 4 different cold dark matter cosmological models with $256^3$ particles analysed by Jenkins et al 1998; (iii) Dark halo catalogs, merger trees and galaxy catalogs from the GIF project described by Kauffmann et al 1999. Basic software is supplied to read the data. The data can be accessed from:
