  author={Andrey V. Kravtsov and Viraj Manwadkar},
We present a simple regulator-type framework designed specifically for modelling formation of dwarf galaxies. We explore sensitivity of model predictions for the stellar mass–halo mass and stellar mass–metallicity relations to different modelling choices and parameter values. Despite its simplicity, when coupled with realistic mass accretion histories of haloes from simulations and reasonable choices for model parameter values, the framework can reproduce a remarkably broad range of observed…
