Yao-Yuan Mao, University of Pittsburgh,"Mass' not the only thing: Secondary effects in the galaxy-halo connection"
KICP seminar: Jan 26 @ 12 PM, ERC 401
Dark matter halos are the building blocks of our universe. The story we have been telling is that the galaxies live in halos, and that brighter galaxies live in bigger halos. This story is mostly consistent with our observation and hydrodynamical simulations, and has shed light on our understandings of galaxy formation and evolution.
