“Cosmological Galaxy Simulations Compared with Observations”

I will give an overview of the latest galaxy simulations by the group led by Avishai Dekel and me compared with observations from the large HST CANDELS survey, and the new Assembling Galaxies of Resolved Anatomy (AGORA) high-resolution galaxy simulation comparison project (http://AGORAsimulations.org) that Piero Madau and I initiated last year.  I will also briefly summarize new work using the Bolshoi cosmological simulations, including new Semi-Analytic Models of the evolving galaxy population.
