Confronting predictions of the galaxy stellar mass function with observations at high redshift

Abstract:

We investigate the evolution of the galaxy stellar mass function at high redshift (z ≥ 5) using a pair of large cosmological hydrodynamical simulations: MassiveBlack and Massive Black-II. By combining these simulations, we can study the properties of galaxies with stellar masses greater than 108M⊙ h-1 and (comoving) number densities of log10(φ [Mpc-3 dex-1 h3]) > -8. Observational determinations of the galaxy stellar mass function at very high redshift typically assume a relation between t...
