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 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 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
GADGET: a code for collisionless and gasdynamical cosmological simulations
Abstract We describe the newly written code GADGET which is suitable both for cosmological simulations of structure formation and for the simulation of interacting galaxies. GADGET evolvesExpand
Simulations of Early Structure Formation: Primordial Gas Clouds
We use cosmological simulations to study the origin of primordial star-forming clouds in a ΛCDM universe, by following the formation of dark matter halos and the cooling of gas within them. To modelExpand
Galaxy Clusters in Hubble Volume Simulations: Cosmological Constraints from Sky Survey Populations
We use gigaparticle N-body simulations to study galaxy cluster populations in Hubble volumes of ΛCDM and ΓCDM world models.
Formation of Primordial Stars in a ΛCDM Universe
We study the formation of the first generation of stars in the standard cold dark matter model. We use a very high resolution cosmological hydrodynamic simulation that achieves a dynamic range ofExpand
Formation of Primordial Supermassive Stars by Rapid Mass Accretion
Supermassive stars (SMSs) forming via very rapid mass accretion (Mdot >~ 0.1 Msun/yr) could be precursors of supermassive black holes observed beyond redshift of about 6. Extending our previous work,Expand
The Structure and Evolution of Early Cosmological H II Regions
We study the formation and evolution of H II regions around the first stars formed at redshifts z = 10-30. We use a one-dimensional Lagrangian hydrodynamics code that self-consistently incorporatesExpand
