Galaxies form from the accretion of cosmological infall of gas. In the high redshift Universe, most of this gas infall is expected to be dominated by cold filamentary flows which connect deep down inside haloes, and, hence, to the vicinity of galaxies. Such cold flows are important since they dominate the mass and angular momentum acquisition that can make up rotationally-supported disks at high-redshifts. We study the angular momentum acquisition of gas into galaxies, and in particular, the…

Formation and Morphology of the First Galaxies in the Cosmic Morning

We investigate the formation and morphological evolution of the first galaxies in the cosmic morning (10 ≳ z ≳ 4) using the Horizon Run 5 (HR5) simulation. For galaxies above the stellar mass

The editors of the AsCL and members of its Advisory Committee were on hand at a demonstration table in the ADASS poster room to present the ASCL, accept code submissions, show how the ASLI is starting to be used by the astrophysics community, and take questions on and suggestions for improving the resource.
