We present initial results from the Jubilee Integrated Sachs-Wolfe (ISW) project, which models the expected Λ cold dark matter ISW effect in the Jubilee simulation. The simulation volume is (6 h−1 Gpc)3, allowing power on very large scales to be incorporated into the calculation. Haloes are resolved down to a mass of 1.5 × 1012 h−1 M⊙, which allows us to derive a catalogue of mock Luminous Red Galaxies (LRGs) for cross-correlation analysis with the ISW signal. We find the ISW effect observed on a projected sky to grow stronger at late times with the evolution of the ISW power spectrum matching expectations from linear theory. Maps of the gravitational-lensing effect are calculated using the same potential as for the ISW. We calculate the redshift dependence of the ISW–LRG cross-correlation signal for a full-sky survey with no noise considerations. For ℓ < 30, the signal is strongest for lower redshift bins (z ∼ 0.2–0.5), whereas for ℓ > 30, the signal is best observed with surveys covering z ∼ 0.6–1.0.
