As one of the founders of the discipline, James Keeler, said, Astrophysics "seeks to ascertain the nature of the heavenly bodies, rather than their positions or motions in space–what they are, rather than where they are."

Among the subjects studied at the ICS are Black Holes & Gravitational Waves, Galaxy & Star Formation, Large Scale Simulations, Planet Formation & Planetary Science.

Computational science is an area of science that uses advanced computing capabilities to understand and solve complex physical problems.

In practical use, it is typically the application of computer simulation and other forms of computation from numerical analysis and theoretical computer science to solve problems in various scientific disciplines.

Cosmology is the study of the origin and the evolution of our own Universe. Since the dawn of mankind, the questions in cosmology have kept the brightest mind wonder: "How did the Universe come to be?"

Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that involves the extraction of insights and knowledge from structured and unstructured data using scientific methods, processes, algorithms, and systems. It involves the use of statistical and computational techniques to analyze and interpret data in order to derive insights, build models, and make predictions.

HPC stands for High-Performance Computing. It refers to the use of supercomputers or computer clusters to solve complex problems that require a significant amount of processing power or memory. HPC is used in a wide range of fields such as scientific research, engineering, weather forecasting, and financial modeling.

Quantum Computational Science is a field that studies the theory and development of algorithms and software for quantum computers. It involves the use of quantum mechanics principles to design and implement computational models and algorithms that can perform certain computations more efficiently than classical computers.
