A Universal Density Profile from Hierarchical Clustering
We use high-resolution N-body simulations to study the equilibrium density profiles of dark matter halos in hierarchically clustering universes. We find that all such profiles have the same shape,Expand
Simulations of the formation, evolution and clustering of galaxies and quasars
It is shown that baryon-induced features in the initial conditions of the Universe are reflected in distorted form in the low-redshift galaxy distribution, an effect that can be used to constrain the nature of dark energy with future generations of observational surveys of galaxies. Expand
The evolution of large-scale structure in a universe dominated by cold dark matter
The results of numerical simulations of nonlinear gravitational clustering in universes dominated by weakly interacting, 'cold' dark matter are presented. The numerical methods used and the way inExpand
The Structure of cold dark matter halos
High resolution N-body simulations show that the density profiles of dark matter halos formed in the standard CDM cosmogony can be fit accurately by scaling a simple “universal” profile. RegardlessExpand
The 2dF galaxy redshift survey: near-infrared galaxy luminosity functions
We combine the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) Extended Source Catalogue and the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey to produce an infrared selected galaxy catalogue with 17 173 measured redshifts. We useExpand
The Aquarius Project: the subhaloes of galactic haloes
We have performed the largest ever particle simulation of a Milky Way sized dark matter halo, and present the most comprehensive convergence study for an individual dark matter halo carried out thusExpand
The mass function of dark matter haloes
We combine data from a number of N-body simulations to predict the abundance of dark haloes in cold dark matter (CDM) universes over more than four orders of magnitude in mass. A comparison ofExpand
The many lives of active galactic nuclei: cooling flows, black holes and the luminosities and colour
We simulate the growth of galaxies and their central supermassive black holes by implementing a suite of semi-analytic models on the output of the Millennium Run, a very large simulation of theExpand
The EAGLE project: Simulating the evolution and assembly of galaxies and their environments
We introduce the Virgo Consortium's EAGLE project, a suite of hydrodynamical simulations that follow the formation of galaxies and black holes in representative volumes. We discuss the limitations ofExpand
Stable clustering, the halo model and non-linear cosmological power spectra
We present the results of a large library of cosmological N-body simulations, using power-law initial spectra.
