We combine data from a number of N-body simulations to predict the abundance of dark haloes in cold dark matter (CDM) universes over more than four orders of magnitude in mass. A comparison of different simulations suggests that the dominant uncertainty in our results is systematic and is smaller than 10–30 per cent at all masses, depending on the halo definition used. In particular, our 'Hubble volume' simulations of τCDM and ΛCDM cosmologies allow the abundance of massive clusters to be…

MASS FUNCTION PREDICTIONS BEYOND ΛCDM
The statistics of dark matter halos is an essential component of precision cosmology. The mass distribution of halos, as specified by the halo mass function, is a key input for several cosmological
Precision Determination of the Mass Function of Dark Matter Halos
The predicted mass function of dark matter halos is essential in connecting observed galaxy-cluster counts and models of galaxy clustering to the properties of the primordial density field. We

We measure the clustering of dark matter halos in a large set of collisionless cosmological simulations of the flatCDM cosmology. Halos are identified using the spherical over density algorithm,
Toward a halo mass function for precision cosmology: The Limits of universality
We measure the mass function of dark matter halos in a large set of collisionless cosmological simulations of flat ΛCDM cosmology and investigate its evolution at -->z 2. Halos are identified as
Constraining the halo mass function with observations
The abundances of dark matter halos in the universe are described by the halo mass function (HMF). It enters most cosmological analyses and parametrizes how the linear growth of primordial
Imprints of dark energy on cosmic structure formation: II) Non-Universality of the halo mass function
The universality of the halo mass function is investigated in the context of dark energy cosmologies. This widely used approximation assumes that the mass function can be expressed as a function of
Evolution of the mass function of dark matter haloes
We use a high resolutionCDM numerical simulation to calculate the mass function of dark matter haloes down to the scale of dwarf galaxies, back to a redshift of fifteen, in a 50 h −1 Mpc volume
Mass Function of Low-Mass Dark Halos
The mass function of dark halos in a Λ-dominated cold dark matter universe is investigated. We analyze 529 output files from five runs of N-body simulations using the friends-of-friends cluster
ACCURATE UNIVERSAL MODELS FOR THE MASS ACCRETION HISTORIES AND CONCENTRATIONS OF DARK MATTER HALOS
A large amount of observations have constrained cosmological parameters and the initial density fluctuation spectrum to a very high accuracy. However, cosmological parameters change with time and the

We study properties of dark matter halos at high redshifts z ¼ 2-10 for a vast range of masses with the emphasis on dwarf halos with masses of 10 7 -10 9 h � 1 M� . We find that the density profiles
