SHAO Astrophysics Colloquia  


Modeling galaxy formation and distribution 


Speaker: Xi Kang(PMO) 

Time: Fridany,3:00pm, May 15 

Location: Lecture Hall, 3rd floor  


 I will introduce a few methods to model the formation of galaxy population in a cosmological context,  including the hydrodynamical simulation and semi-analytical model, and then highlight the recent progress and challenges. I will also discuss the observed galaxy alignment effect, and show how it is related to the primordial anisotropic distribution set by large scale structure in early universe
