We present a numerical study of dark matter halo concentrations in ΛCDM and self-similar cosmologies. We show that the relation between concentration, c, and peak height, ν, exhibits the smallest deviations from universality if halo masses are defined with respect to the critical density of the universe. These deviations can be explained by the residual dependence of concentration on the local slope of the matter power spectrum, n, which affects both the normalization and shape of the c… 
An Accurate Physical Model for Halo Concentrations
The relation between halo mass, M, and concentration, c, is a critical component in our understanding of the structure of dark matter halos. While numerous models for this relation have been
Halo Profiles and the Concentration–Mass Relation for a ΛCDM Universe
Profiles of dark matter-dominated halos at the group and cluster scales play an important role in modern cosmology. Using results from two very large cosmological N-body simulations, which increase
The mass–concentration–redshift relation of cold and warm dark matter haloes
We use a suite of cosmological simulations to study the mass–concentration–redshift relation, c(M, z), of dark matter haloes. Our simulations include standard Λ-cold dark matter (CDM) models, and
The accretion history of dark matter haloes - III. A physical model for the concentration-mass relation
We present a semi-analytic, physically motivated model for dark matter halo concentration as a function of halo mass and redshift. The semi-analytic model is intimately based on hierarchical
The connection between halo concentrations and assembly histories: a probe of gravity?
We use two high-resolution N-body simulations, one assuming general relativity (GR) and the other the Hu–Sawicki form of f(R) gravity with $\vert \bar{f}_{\mathrm{ R}} \vert = 10^{-6}$, to
MultiDark simulations: the story of dark matter halo concentrations and density profiles
Accurately predicting structural properties of dark matter halos is one of the fundamental goals of modern cosmology. We use the new suite of MultiDark cosmological simulations to study the evolution
Einasto profiles and the dark matter power spectrum
We study the mass accretion histories (MAHs) and density profiles of dark matter haloes using N-body simulations of self-similar gravitational clustering from scale-free power spectra, P(k) ∝ kn. We
A Semianalytic Model of the Pairwise Velocity Distribution between Dark Matter Halos
We study the probability distribution function (PDF) of relative velocity between two different dark matter halos (i.e., pairwise velocity) with high-resolution cosmological N-body simulations. We
From universal profiles to universal scaling laws in X-ray galaxy clusters
As the end products of the hierarchical process of cosmic structure formation, galaxy clusters present some predictable properties, like those mostly driven by gravity, and some others more affected
Universal at Last? The Splashback Mass Function of Dark Matter Halos
The mass function of dark matter halos is one of the most fundamental statistics in structure formation. Many theoretical models (such as Press–Schechter theory) are based on the notion that it could
