Formation of proto-globular cluster candidates in cosmological simulations of dwarf galaxies at $z>4$
We perform cosmological hydrodynamical simulations to study the formation of proto-globular cluster candidates in progenitors of present-day dwarf galaxies (Mvir ≈ 1010M at z = 0) as part of the
Extinguishing the FIRE: environmental quenching of satellite galaxies around Milky Way-mass hosts in simulations
The star formation and gas content of satellite galaxies around the Milky Way (MW) and Andromeda (M31) are depleted relative to more isolated galaxies in the Local Group (LG) at fixed stellar mass.
3D elemental abundances of stars at formation across the histories of Milky Way-mass galaxies in the FIRE simulations
We characterize the 3-D spatial variations of [Fe/H], [Mg/H], and [Mg/Fe] in stars at the time of their formation, across 11 simulated Milky Way (MW)- and M31-mass galaxies in the FIRE-2
Exploring metallicity-dependent rates of Type Ia supernovae and their impact on galaxy formation
Type Ia supernovae are critical for feedback and elemental enrichment in galaxies. Recent surveys like the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernova (ASAS-SN) and the Dark Energy Survey (DES) find
The In Situ Origins of Dwarf Stellar Outskirts in FIRE-2
Extended, old, and round stellar halos appear to be ubiquitous around high-mass dwarf galaxies (108.5 < M ⋆/M ⊙ < 109.6) in the observed universe. However, it is unlikely that these dwarfs have
The Galaxy Progenitors of Stellar Streams around Milky Way–mass Galaxies in the FIRE Cosmological Simulations
Stellar streams record the accretion history of their host galaxy. We present a set of simulated streams from disrupted dwarf galaxies in 13 cosmological simulations of Milky Way (MW)–mass galaxies
New Families in our Solar Neighborhood: Applying Gaussian Mixture Models for Objective Classification of Structures in the Milky Way and in Simulations
The standard picture of galaxy formation motivates the decomposition of the Milky Way into 3–4 stellar populations with distinct kinematic and elemental abundance distributions: the thin disk, thick
Using Action Space Clustering to Constrain the Accretion History of Milky Way like Galaxies
In the currently favored cosmological paradigm galaxies form hierarchically through the accretion of numerous satellite galaxies. Since the satellites are much less massive than the host halo, they
3D gas-phase elemental abundances across the formation histories of Milky Way-mass galaxies in the FIRE simulations: initial conditions for chemical tagging
We use FIRE-2 simulations to examine 3D variations of gas-phase elemental abundances of [O/H], [Fe/H], and [N/H] in 11 MW and M31-mass galaxies across their formation histories at z ≤ 1.5 ($t_{\rm
The origin of metal-poor stars on prograde disc orbits in FIRE simulations of Milky Way-mass galaxies
In hierarchical structure formation, metal-poor stars in and around the Milky Way (MW) originate primarily from mergers of lower-mass galaxies. A common expectation is therefore that metal-poor stars
