Astronomy Colloquium
The IllustrisTNG Simulations: Elemental Evolution in Cosmological Simulations
Date: Thursday, May 4th
Time: 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall, Cookies and Coffee at 3:30 PM, Talk at 3:45 PM
Speaker: Jill Naiman, CfA Boston
Abstract: I will give an overview of some of the new features of the IllustrisTNG models - a set of gravitational, hydrodynamical, MHD cosmological simulations aimed at resolving from the formation of galaxy clusters down to the structures of Milky Way dwarf galaxies. A brief overview of AREPO, the code used in these simulations, and updates from its first cosmological implementation in the Illustris simulations will be presented. I will conclude with some preliminary results on the distribution of elements in our simulations, in particular, the distribution of Europium in Milky Way sized galaxies.
