Understanding the relationship between the cosmic web and the gas content of galaxies is a key step towards understanding galaxy evolution. However, the impact of the cosmic web on the growth of galaxies and dark matter halos is not yet properly understood. We report a detection of the effect of the cosmic web on the galaxy stellar mass gas phase metallicity relation of low redshift star-forming galaxies, using SDSS data. The proximity of a galaxy to a node, independently of stellar mass and…

Galaxy evolution in the metric of the cosmic web
The role of the cosmic web in shaping galaxy properties is investigated in the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) spectroscopic survey in the redshift range 0.03 ≤ z ≤ 0.25. The stellar mass, u − r dust
The impact of the connectivity of the cosmic web on the physical properties of galaxies at its nodes
We investigate the impact of the number of filaments connected to the nodes of the cosmic web on the physical properties of their galaxies using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. We compare these
The Connection Between Galaxies and Their Dark Matter Halos
In our modern understanding of galaxy formation, every galaxy forms within a dark matter halo. The formation and growth of galaxies over time is connected to the growth of the halos in which they
Explaining the scatter in the galaxy mass–metallicity relation with gas flows
The physical origin of the scatter in the relation between galaxy stellar mass and the metallicity of the interstellar medium, i.e. the Mass-Metallicity Relation (MZR), reflects the relative
Gas accretion regulates the scatter of the mass–metallicity relation
In this paper, we take advantage of the GAlaxy Evolution and Assembly (GAEA) semi-analytic model to analyse the origin of secondary dependencies in the local galaxy mass–gas metallicity relation.
The imprint of cosmic web quenching on central galaxies
We investigate how cosmic web environment impacts the average properties of central galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We analyse how the average specific star-formation rate, stellar
The dependence of the galaxy mass-metallicity relation on environment and the implied metallicity of the IGM
We explore the dependence of the galaxy mass-metallicity relation on environment in SDSS, in terms of both over-density and central/satellite dichotomy. We find that at a given stellar mass, there is
The Origin of the Mass-Metallicity Relation: Insights from 53,000 Star-forming Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We utilize Sloan Digital Sky Survey imaging and spectroscopy of ~53,000 star-forming galaxies at z ~ 0.1 to study the relation between stellar mass and gas-phase metallicity. We derive gas-phase
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
Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): stellar mass growth of spiral galaxies in the cosmic web
We look for correlated changes in stellar mass and star formation rate (SFR) along filaments in the cosmic web by examining the stellar masses and UV-derived SFRs of 1799 ungrouped and unpaired
