The formation mechanisms of giant low surface brightness galaxies (LSBGs), with high masses and low star formation rates, remain unclear. If a dark matter halo forms at the potential hill corresponding to a void of the cosmic web, which we denote the 'elaphrocentre' in contrast to a barycentre, then the elaphrocentre should weaken the infall rate to the halo when compared to infall rates towards barycentres. We investigate this hypothesis numerically. We present a complete software pipeline to… Expand
