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 thus
Introducing the Illustris Project: simulating the coevolution of dark and visible matter in the Universe
We introduce the Illustris Project, a series of large-scale hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy formation. The highest resolution simulation, Illustris-1, covers a volume of $(106.5\,{\rm Mpc})^3$,
Properties of galaxies reproduced by a hydrodynamic simulation
A simulation that starts 12 million years after the Big Bang, and traces 13 billion years of cosmic evolution with 12 billion resolution elements in a cube of 106.5 megaparsecs a side yields a reasonable population of ellipticals and spirals, reproduces the observed distribution of galaxies in clusters and characteristics of hydrogen on large scales, and at the same time matches the ‘metal’ and hydrogen content of galaxies on small scales.
Introducing the Illustris Project: the evolution of galaxy populations across cosmic time
We present an overview of galaxy evolution across cosmic time in the Illustris Simulation. Illustris is an N-body/hydrodynamical simulation that evolves 2*1820^3 resolution elements in a (106.5Mpc)^3
First results from the IllustrisTNG simulations: the stellar mass content of groups and clusters of galaxies
The IllustrisTNG project is a new suite of cosmological magneto-hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy formation performed with the Arepo code and updated models for feedback physics. Here we introduce
The diversity and similarity of simulated cold dark matter haloes
We study the mass, velocity dispersion and anisotropy profiles of Lambda cold dark matter (Lambda CDM) haloes using a suite of N-body simulations of unprecedented numerical resolution. The Aquarius
Simulating galaxy formation with the IllustrisTNG model
We introduce an updated physical model to simulate the formation and evolution of galaxies in cosmological, large-scale gravity+magnetohydrodynamical simulations with the moving mesh code AREPO. The
A model for cosmological simulations of galaxy formation physics
We present a new comprehensive model of the physics of galaxy formation designed for large-scale hydrodynamical simulations of structure formation using the moving mesh code AREPO. Our model includes
The illustris simulation: Public data release
The full public release of all data from the Illustris simulation project is presented, including the flagship Illustris-1 run, and a comprehensive, web-based API which allows programmatic access to search and data processing tasks is released.
The merger rate of galaxies in the Illustris simulation: a comparison with observations and semi-empirical models
We have constructed merger trees for galaxies in the Illustris simulation by directly tracking the baryonic content of subhaloes. These merger trees are used to calculate the galaxy–galaxy merger
