The stellar metallicity distribution of disc galaxies and bulges in cosmological simulations (2012)
Journal Article
Calura, F., Gibson, B. K., Michel-Dansac, L., Stinson, G. S., Cignoni, M., Dotter, A., …Wadsley, J. (2012). The stellar metallicity distribution of disc galaxies and bulges in cosmological simulations. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 427(2), 1401-1417. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2966.2012.22052.x

By means of high-resolution cosmological hydrodynamical simulations of Milky Way (MW) like disc galaxies, we conduct an analysis of the associated stellar metallicity distribution functions (MDFs). After undertaking a kinematic decomposition of each... Read More

Calibrating an updated smoothed particle hydrodynamics scheme within GCD+ (2012)
Journal Article
Kawata, D., Okamoto, T., Gibson, B. K., Barnes, D. J., & Cen, R. (2013). Calibrating an updated smoothed particle hydrodynamics scheme within GCD+. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 428(3), 1968-1979. doi:10.1093/mnras/sts161

We adapt a modern scheme of smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) to our treeN-body/SPH galactic chemodynamics code GCD+. The applied scheme includes implementations of the artificial viscosity switch and artificial thermal conductivity proposed by M... Read More

Properties of simulated Milky Way-mass galaxies in loose group and field environments (2012)
Journal Article
Few, C. G., Gibson, B. K., Courty, S., Michel-Dansac, L., Brook, C. B., & Stinson, G. S. (2012). Properties of simulated Milky Way-mass galaxies in loose group and field environments. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 547, https://doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/201219649

Aims. We test the validity of comparing simulated field disk galaxies with the empirical properties of systems situated within environments more comparable to loose groups, including the Milky Way’s Local Group. Methods. Cosmological simulations o... Read More
