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 host galaxies of active galactic nuclei
We examine the properties of the host galaxies of 22 623 narrow-line active galactic nuclei (AGN) with 0.02 < z < 0.3 selected from a complete sample of 122 808 galaxies from the Sloan Digital SkyExpand
The Origin of the Mass-Metallicity Relation: Insights from 53,000 Star-forming Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We utilize Sloan Digital Sky Survey imaging and spectroscopy of ~53,000 star-forming galaxies at z ~ 0.1 to study the relation between stellar mass and gas-phase metallicity. We derive gas-phaseExpand
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 physical properties of star-forming galaxies in the low-redshift universe
We present a comprehensive study of the physical properties of ∼ 10 5 galaxies with measurable star formation in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). By comparing physical information extracted fromExpand
Stellar masses and star formation histories for 105 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We develop a new method to constrain the star formation histories, dust attenuation and stellar masses of galaxies. It is based on two stellar absorption-line indices, the 4000-A break strength andExpand
Planck 2015 results - XIII. Cosmological parameters
This paper presents cosmological results based on full-mission Planck observations of temperature and polarization anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation. Our results are inExpand
The size distribution of galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We use a complete sample of about 140,000 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to study the size distribution of galaxies and its dependence on their luminosity, stellar mass, andExpand
