Semi-Analytic Galaxy Evolution (SAGE): Model Calibration and Basic Results
This paper describes a new publicly available codebase for modelling galaxy formation in a cosmological context, the "Semi-Analytic Galaxy Evolution" model, or SAGE for short. SAGE is a significantExpand
Building disc structure and galaxy properties through angular momentum: the DARK SAGE semi-analytic model
We present the new semi-analytic model of galaxy evolution, DARK SAGE, a heavily modified version of the publicly available SAGE code. The model is designed for detailed evolution of galactic discs.Expand
Upcoming next generation galactic surveys, such as Gaia and HERMES, will deliver unprecedented detail about the structure and make-up of our Galaxy, the Milky Way, and promise to radically improveExpand
Dark-ages reionization and galaxy formation simulation – III. Modelling galaxy formation and the epoch of reionization
We introduce Meraxes, a new, purpose-built semi-analytic galaxy formation model designed for studying galaxy growth during reionization. Meraxes is the first model of its type to include a temporallyExpand
The simplest model of galaxy formation – I. A formation history model of galaxy stellar mass growth
We introduce a simple model to self-consistently connect the growth of galaxies to the formation history of their host dark matter haloes. Our model is defined by two simple functions: the "baryonicExpand
CANDELS Visual Classifications: Scheme, Data Release, and First Results
We have undertaken an ambitious program to visually classify all galaxies in the five CANDELS fields down to H <24.5 involving the dedicated efforts of 65 individual classifiers. Once completed, weExpand
The growth of discs and bulges during hierarchical galaxy formation – I. Fast evolution versus secular processes
We present a theoretical model for the evolution of mass, angular momentum and size of galaxy disks and bulges, and we implement it into the semi-analytic galaxy formation code SAGE. The modelExpand
Constraining the last 7 billion years of galaxy evolution: In semi-analytic models
We investigate the ability of the Croton et al. (2006) semi-analytic model to reproduce the evolution of observed galaxies across the final 7 billion years of cosmic history. Using Monte-Carlo MarkovExpand
Dark-ages reionization and galaxy formation simulation - X. The small contribution of quasars to reionization
Motivated by recent measurements of the number density of faint AGN at high redshift, we investigate the contribution of quasars to reionization by tracking the growth of central supermassive blackExpand
Dark-ages Reionization and Galaxy formation simulation – I. The dynamical lives of high-redshift galaxies
We present the Dark-ages Reionization and Galaxy-formation Observables from Numerical Simulations (DRAGONS) program and Tiamat, the collisionless N-body simulation program upon which DRAGONS isExpand
