Halo Concentration, Assembly Bias, And Galaxy-halo Connection (speaker: Yao-Yuan Mao, Stanford University)

Monday November 16, 2015 12:05 pm
Marlar Lounge (37-252)

The connection between dark matter halos and galaxies is one of the most critical questions in galaxy formation. With new suites of cosmological simulations and zoom-in simulations of Milky Way-mass halos, we inspect the theoretical framework of the galaxy-halo connection. Particularly, in this talk I will discuss how to parametrize and to constrain the concentration dependence in the abundance matching technique, and the implications of this new parameter on assembly bias.
