We extend the subhalo abundance matching method to assign galaxy color to subhalos. We separate a luminosity-binned subhalo sample into two groups by a secondary subhalo property which is presumed to be correlated with galaxy color. The two subsamples then represent red and blue galaxy populations. We explore two models for the secondary property, namely subhalo assembly time and local dark matter density around each subhalo. The model predictions for the galaxy two-point correlation functions… 

ADDGALS: Simulated Sky Catalogs for Wide Field Galaxy Surveys

We present a method for creating simulated galaxy catalogs with realistic galaxy luminosities, broadband colors, and projected clustering over large cosmic volumes. The technique, denoted Addgals

Galaxy-dark matter structure relations in the standard cosmological model

Recent galaxy redshift surveys have provided us with large data of the galaxy distribution in the Universe. Such data enables us to measure various statistics including two-point statistics even for

First results from the IllustrisTNG simulations: matter and galaxy clustering

Hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy formation have now reached sufficient volume to make precision predictions for clustering on cosmologically relevant scales. Here we use our new IllustrisTNG

Does the galaxy–halo connection vary with environment?

SubHalo Abundance Matching (SHAM) assumes that one (sub)halo property, such as mass Mvir or peak circular velocity Vpeak, determines properties of the galaxy hosted in each (sub)halo such as its

Analytical halo model of galactic conformity

We present a fully analytical halo model of colour-dependent clustering that incorporates the effects of galactic conformity in a halo occupation distribution (HOD) framework. The model, based on our

The galaxy - dark matter halo connection: which galaxy properties are correlated with the host halo mass?

We demonstrate how the properties of a galaxy depend on the mass of its host dark matter subhalo, using two independent models of galaxy formation. For the cases of stellar mass and black hole mass,

A two-parameter matching scheme for massive galaxies and dark matter haloes

Halo Abundance Matching has been used to construct a one-parameter mapping between galaxies and dark matter haloes by assuming that halo mass and galaxy luminosity (or stellar mass) are monotonically

What determines large scale galaxy clustering: halo mass or local density?

Using dark matter simulations we show how halo bias is determined by local density and not by halo mass. This is not totally surprising, as according to the peak-background split model, local density

PRIMUS: GALAXY CLUSTERING AS A FUNCTION OF LUMINOSITY AND COLOR AT 0.2 < z < 1

We present measurements of the luminosity and color-dependence of galaxy clustering at 0.2 < z < 1.0 in the Prism Multi-object Survey. We quantify the clustering with the redshift-space and projected

Correlating galaxy colour and halo concentration: a tunable halo model of galactic conformity

We extend the Halo Occupation Distribution (HOD) framework to generate mock galaxy catalogs exhibiting varying levels of "galactic conformity", which has emerged as a potentially powerful probe of

A halo model of galaxy colours and clustering in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey

Successful halo-model descriptions of the luminosity dependence of clustering distinguish between the central galaxy in a halo and all the others (satellites). To include colours, we provide a

We investigate an analytic model to compute the non-linear power spectrum of dark matter, galaxies and their cross-correlation. The model is based on Press–Schechter haloes, which cluster and have

Galaxy-galaxy (g-g) lensing is a powerful probe of the relation between galaxies and dark matter (DM) haloes, but its theoretical interpretation requires a careful modelling of various contributions,
