Clustering of galaxies in a hierarchical universe - I. Methods and results at z=0
We introduce a new technique for following the formation and evolution of galaxies in cosmological N-body simulations. Dissipationless simulations are used to track the formation and merging of dark
Simulating the joint evolution of quasars, galaxies and their large-scale distribution

Direct Cosmological Simulations of the Growth of Black Holes and Galaxies
We investigate the coupled formation and evolution of galaxies and their embedded supermassive black holes using state-of-the-art hydrodynamic simulations of cosmological structure formation. For the
Clustering of galaxies in a hierarchical universe — II. Evolution to high redshift
In hierarchical cosmologies the evolution of galaxy clustering depends both on cosmological quantities such as Ω, Λ and P(k), which determine how collapsed structures – dark matter haloes – form and
Voids in a ΛCDM universe
We study the formation and evolution of voids in the dark matter distribution using various simulations of the popular A cold dark matter cosmogony. We identify voids by requiring them to be regions
The Aspen-Amsterdam void finder comparison project
Despite a history that dates back at least a quarter of a century studies of voids in the large–scale structure of the Universe are bedevilled by a major problem: there exist a large number of quite
Intercluster filaments in a ΛCDM Universe
The large-scale structure (LSS) in the Universe comprises a complicated filamentary network of matter. We study this network using a high-resolution simulation of structure formation in a A Cold Dark
Clustering of galaxies in a hierarchical universe — III. Mock redshift surveys
This is the third paper in a series which combines N-body simulations and semi-analytic modelling to provide a fully spatially resolved simulation of the galaxy formation and clustering processes.
Quantifying cosmic superstructures
The large-scale structure (LSS) found in galaxy redshift surveys and in computer simulations of cosmic structure formation shows a very complex network of galaxy clusters, filaments and sheets around
Linking cluster formation to large-scale structure
ABSTRA C T We use two high-resolution cold dark matter (CDM) simulations to investigate how the formation of clusters of galaxies is related to the distribution of the surrounding mass. It is well
