We present the first comparison of observed stellar continuum spectra of high-redshift galaxies and mock galaxy spectra generated from hydrodynamical simulations. The mock spectra are produced from the IllustrisTNG TNG100 simulation combined with stellar population models and take into account dust attenuation and realistic observational effects (aperture effects and noise). We compare the simulated Dn4000 and EW(Hδ) of galaxies with 10.5≤log(M*/M⊙)≤11.5 at 0.6 ≤ z ≤ 1.0 to the observed… Expand


Galactic stellar and substellar initial mass function
We review recent determinations of the present-day mass function (PDMF) and initial mass function (IMF) in various components of the Galaxy—disk, spheroid, young, and globular clusters—and inExpand
The Luminosity function and stellar evolution
The evolutionary significance of the observed luminosity function for main-sequence stars in the solar neighborhood is discussed. The hypothesis is made that stars move off the main sequence afterExpand

Introducing piXedfit: A Spectral Energy Distribution Fitting Code Designed for Resolved Sources
We present piXedfit, pixelized spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting, a Python package that provides tools for analyzing spatially resolved properties of galaxies using multiband imaging dataExpand
Quenched fractions in the IllustrisTNG simulations: comparison with observations and other theoretical models
We make an in-depth comparison of the IllustrisTNG cosmological simulations with observed quenched fractions of central and satellite galaxies, for Mstars = 109–12 M⊙ at 0 ≤ z ≤ 3. We show howExpand
Spatially resolved star formation and inside-out quenching in the TNG50 simulation and 3D-HST observations
We compare the star-forming main sequence (SFMS) of galaxies – both integrated and resolved on 1 kpc scales – between the high-resolution TNG50 simulation of IllustrisTNG and observations from theExpand
