If the favored hierarchical cosmological model is correct, then the Milky Way system should have accreted � 100– 200 luminous satellite galaxies in the past � 12 Gyr. We model this process using a hybrid semianalytic plus N-body approach that distinguishes explicitly between the evolution of light and dark matter in accreted satellites. This distinction is essential to our ability to produce a realistic stellar halo, with mass and density profile much like that of our own Galaxy, and a… Expand
