(including bulgeless dwarf disk galaxies). The resulting simulated galaxies simultaneously match observed disk scaling relations (stellar mass -- metallicity, size -- luminosity, size -- velocity, and velocity -- luminosity) for the first time. Realistic simulated galaxies are the necessary starting point for interpreting observations in light of galaxy formation theory. Hence, I will conclude by highlighting the science enabled by these state-of-the-art simulations.
