    LYRA: Galaxy formation with a multi-phase ISM, individual stars and resolved supernovae in a cosmological context

     

    Abstract:

    I will present the LYRA project: A high resolution galaxy formation model built within the cosmological hydro-dynamical framework of the moving mesh code AREPO. The model is able to resolve the multi-phase interstellar medium down to 10K at a spatial resolution of 0.5pc and a mass resolution of 4 solar masses. Individual stars form from density peaks in giant molecular clouds and return metals according to their formation mass...

    "Galaxy metallicity measurements at high redshift: probing galaxy growth over the past 12 billion years"    

    Abstract:

    The scaling of galaxy gas-phase metallicity with stellar mass and star-formation rate is a sensitive probe of the cycle of baryons and galaxy growth.  Characterizing the redshift evolution of these metallicity scaling relations provides a way to assess whether key processes governing galaxy growth (gas inflows, outflows, and star formation) proceed similarly throughout cosmic history.  Accurately...

    Angular Momentum on Galactic Scales: The Roles of Initial Conditions, Non-linear Evolution, and Randomness

    Abstract:

    In this talk we will go on a journey across cosmic time and follow the buildup of the angular momentum of galaxies and their host halos. Galactic angular momentum, which is a strong driver of galactic morphology, has its origins in the relatively simple linear growth phase of structure formation, but is also governed by complex non-linear processes. We will hence explore its relation to dark matter angular momentum, and the roles of baryonic physics...
