We present the study of a set of N-body+smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations of a Milky Way-like system produced by the radiative cooling of hot gas embedded in a dark matter halo. The galaxy and its gaseous halo evolve for 10 Gyr in isolation, which allows us to study how internal processes affect the evolution of the system. We show how the morphology, the kinematics and the evolution of the galaxy are affected by the input supernova feedback energy ESN, and we compare its properties… 
The impact of stellar feedback on the density and velocity structure of the interstellar medium
We study the impact of stellar feedback in shaping the density and velocity structure of neutral hydrogen (H I) in disc galaxies. For our analysis, we carry out ∼4.6 pc resolution N-body+adaptive
Cosmological simulations of Milky Way-sized galaxies
We introduce a new set of eight Milky Way-sized cosmological simulations performed using the AMR code ART + Hydrodynamics in a LCDM cosmology. The set of zoom-in simulations covers present-day virial
Properties of H i discs in the Auriga cosmological simulations
We analyse the properties of the H i gas distribution in the Auriga project, a set of magnetohydrodynamic cosmological simulations performed with the moving-mesh code arepo and a physics model for
High Angular Momentum Halo Gas: a Feedback and Code-Independent Prediction of LCDM
We investigate angular momentum acquisition in Milky Way-sized galaxies by comparing five high resolution zoom-in simulations, each implementing identical cosmological initial conditions, but
Exploring the Milky Way Circumgalactic Medium in a Cosmological Context with a Semianalytic Model
We combine the Santa Cruz semianalytic model (SAM) for galaxy formation and evolution with the circumgalactic medium (CGM) model presented in Faerman et al. to explore the CGM properties of L *
The circumgalactic medium (CGM) remains one of the least constrained components of galaxies and as such has significant potential for advancing galaxy formation theories. In this work, we vary the
HALOGAS: the properties of extraplanar HI in disc galaxies
We present a systematic study of the extraplanar gas (EPG) in a sample of 15 nearby late-type galaxies at intermediate inclinations using publicly available, deep interferometric H I data from the
GASP III. JO36: a case of multiple environmental effects at play?
The so-called jellyfish galaxies are objects exhibiting disturbed morphology, mostly in the form of tails of gas stripped from the main body of the galaxy. Several works have strongly suggested ram
The Role of Cosmic-ray Transport in Shaping the Simulated Circumgalactic Medium
The majority of galactic baryons reside outside of the galactic disk in the diffuse gas known as the circumgalactic medium (CGM). The physical processes that govern the galactic inflows and outflows
A Galaxy-scale Fountain of Cold Molecular Gas Pumped by a Black Hole
We present ALMA and MUSE observations of the Brightest Cluster Galaxy in Abell 2597, a nearby (z = 0:0821) cool core cluster of galaxies. The data map the kinematics of a three billion solar mass


Supernova-driven gas accretion in the Milky Way
We use a model of the Galactic fountain to simulate the neutral-hydrogen emission of the Milky Way Galaxy. The model was developed to account for data on external galaxies with sensitive H i data.
On the origin of the warm–hot absorbers in the Milky Way's halo
Disc galaxies like the Milky Way are expected to be surrounded by massive coronae of hot plasma that may contain a significant fraction of the so-called missing baryons. We investigate whether the
Galaxies in a simulated ΛCDM Universe – I. Cold mode and hot cores
We study the formation of galaxies in a large volume (50 h −1 Mpc, 2 × 288 3 particles) cosmological simulation, evolved using the entropy and energy-conserving smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH)
Galactic fountains and the rotation of disc-galaxy coronae
In galaxies like the Milky Way, cold (˜104 K) gas ejected from the disc by stellar activity (the so-called galactic-fountain gas) is expected to interact with the virial-temperature (˜106 K) gas of
The H i Distribution of the Milky Way
Neutral atomic hydrogen (Hi) traces the interstellar medium (ISM) over a broad range of physical conditions. Its 21-cm emission line is a key probe of the structure and dynamics of the Milky Way
Simulating galactic outflows with kinetic supernova feedback
Feedback from star formation is thought to play a key role in the formation and evolution of galaxies, but its implementation in cosmological simulations is currently hampered by a lack of numerical
The core-cusp problem remains as one of the unsolved discrepancies between observations and theories predicted by the standard paradigm of cold dark matter (CDM) cosmology. To solve this problem, we
We use one of the highest resolution cosmological smoothed particle hydrodynamic simulations to date to demonstrate that cold gaseous clouds form around Milky Way-size galaxies. We further explore

Hierarchical formation of bulgeless galaxies – II. Redistribution of angular momentum via galactic fountains
Within a fully cosmological hydrodynamical simulation, we form a galaxy which rotates at 140 km s −1 , and it is characterized by two loose spiral arms and a bar, indicative of a Hubble-type SBc/d
