Recent strides have been made developing dust evolution models for galaxy formation simulations but these approaches vary in their assumptions and degree of complexity. Here we introduce and compare two separate dust evolution models (labelled ‘Elemental’ and ‘Species’), based on recent approaches, incorporated into the GIZMO code and coupled with FIRE-2 stellar feedback and ISM physics. Both models account for turbulent dust diffusion, stellar production of dust, dust growth via gas-dust…

The Chemical Evolution of Protostellar and Protoplanetary Matter

The different processes that can affect the chemical composition of matter as it evolves from quiescent molecular clouds into protostellar and protoplanetary regions are discussed. Millimeter
