Satellite Survival in CDM Cosmology

Abstract

We study the survival of sub-structures (clumps) within larger self-gravitating dark matter haloes. Building on scaling relations obtained from N -body calculations of violent relaxation, we argue that the tidal field of galaxies and haloes can only destroy sub-structures if spherical symmetry is imposed at formation. We explore other mechanisms that may… (More)
