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


The large-scale environment of low surface brightness galaxies
Context. The exact formation scenarios and evolutionary processes that led to the existence of the class of low surface brightness galaxies (LSBs) have not yet been understood completely. There isExpand
A Universe of ultradiffuse galaxies : theoretical predictions from ΛCDM simulations.
A particular population of galaxies have drawn much interest recently, which are as faint as typical dwarf galaxies but have the sizes as large as L* galaxies, the so called ultradiffuse galaxiesExpand
Clustering of galaxies in a hierarchical universe — II. Evolution to high redshift
In hierarchical cosmologies the evolution of galaxy clustering depends both on cosmological quantities such as Ω, Λ and P(k), which determine how collapsed structures – dark matter haloes – form andExpand
Merging history trees of dark matter haloes: a tool for exploring galaxy formation models
A method of deriving and using merging history trees of dark matter galaxy haloes directly from pure gravity N-body simulations is presented. This combines the full nonlinearity of N-body simulationsExpand
Stellar Populations and the Star Formation Histories of LSB Galaxies: III. Stellar Population Models
Abstract A series of population models are designed to explore the star formation history of gas-rich, low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies. LSB galaxies are unique in having properties of very blueExpand
Angular momentum properties of haloes and their baryon content in the Illustris simulation
The angular momentum properties of virialised dark matter haloes have been measured with good statistics in collisionless N-body simulations, but an equally accurate analysis of the baryonic spin isExpand
The origin of ultra diffuse galaxies: stellar feedback and quenching.
It is shown that outflows that dynamically heat galactic stars, together with a passively aging stellar population after imposed quenching, naturally reproduce the observed population of red UDGs, without the need for high spin haloes, or dynamical influence from their host cluster. Expand
Formation of ultra-diffuse galaxies in the field and in galaxy groups
We study ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in zoom in cosmological simulations, seeking the origin of UDGs in the field versus galaxy groups. We find that while field UDGs arise from dwarfs in aExpand
Stellar Populations and the Star Formation Histories of LSB Galaxies—Part I: Optical and Hα Imaging
This paper presents optical and Hα imaging for a large sample of LSB galaxies selected from the PSS-II catalogs (Schombert et al., 1992). As noted in previous work, LSB galaxies span a range ofExpand
The formation of galactic discs
We study the population of galactic discs expected in current hierarchical clustering models for structure formation. A rotationally supported disc with exponential surface density profile is assumedExpand
