We present cosmological hydrodynamical simulations of the formation of dwarf galax- ies in a representative sample of haloes extracted from the Millennium-II Simulation. Our six haloes have a z = 0 mass of � 10 10 Mand show different mass assembly histories which are reflected in different star formation histories. We find final stellar masses in the range 5 × 10 7 10 8 M� , consistent with other published simulations of galaxy formation in similar mass haloes. Our final objects have structures… Expand

SIMULATIONS OF ISOLATED DWARF GALAXIES FORMED IN DARK MATTER HALOS WITH DIFFERENT MASS ASSEMBLY HISTORIES
We present zoom-in N-body/hydrodynamics resimulations of dwarf galaxies formed in isolated cold dark matter (CDM) halos with the same virial mass (Mv ≈ 2.5 × 1010 M ☉) at redshift z = 0. Our goalsExpand
The formation of disc galaxies in high-resolution moving-mesh cosmological simulations
We present cosmological hydrodynamical simulations of eight Milky Way-sized haloes that have been previously studied with dark matter only in the Aquarius project. For the first time, we employ theExpand

The chosen few: the low-mass haloes that host faint galaxies
Since reionization prevents star formation in most halos below 3 x 10^9 solar masses, dwarf galaxies only populate a fraction of existing dark matter halos. We use hydrodynamic cosmologicalExpand
REPRODUCING THE STELLAR MASS/HALO MASS RELATION IN SIMULATED ΛCDM GALAXIES: THEORY VERSUS OBSERVATIONAL ESTIMATES
We examine the present-day total stellar-to-halo mass (SHM) ratio as a function of halo mass for a new sample of simulated field galaxies using fully cosmological, ?CDM, high-resolution SPH + N-bodyExpand

Bulgeless dwarf galaxies and dark matter cores from supernova-driven outflows
TLDR
Hydrodynamical simulations in a framework assuming the presence of CDM and a cosmological constant are reported in which the inhomogeneous interstellar medium is resolved and the analogues of dwarf galaxies—bulgeless and with shallow central dark-matter profiles—arise naturally in these simulations.

Stellar Feedback in Dwarf Galaxy Formation
TLDR
Detailed cosmological simulations show that feedback drives large-scale, bulk motions of the interstellar gas, resulting in substantial gravitational potential fluctuations and a consequent reduction in the central matter density, bringing the theoretical predictions in agreement with observations.
