Today, we have posted our flagship paper on the AGORA galaxy formation simulation comparison project. I'm extremely happy to be a part of this collaboration to further understand the differences between astrophysical simulation codes. This paper outlines the philosophy behind the project and serves as a platform for independent scientific projects, which we have … Continue Reading ››

- Uncorrelated BH seeding -> M-sigma. I first saw this in a conference in Potsdam (2010). Interesting, but they considered a 100% occupation fraction. Peng (2007), Jahnke & Maccio (2010).
- Low scatter in M-sigma, but there are some outliers (e.g. NGC 1277)! Forming too many / little stars. … Continue Reading ››
