On the formation of dwarf galaxies and stellar haloes

Abstract:

Using analytic arguments and a suite of very high resolution (∼103 M ⊙ per particle) cosmological hydrodynamical simulations, we argue that high-redshift, z ∼ 10, M ∼ 10 8 M ⊙ haloes, form the smallest 'baryonic building block' (BBB) for galaxy formation. These haloes are just massive enough to efficiently form stars through atomic line cooling and to hold on to their gas in the presence of supernova (SN) winds and reionization. These combined effects, in particular that of the SN feedback, c...
