New Insight into Cosmology and the Galaxy-Halo Connection from Non-Linear Scales
Frank van den Bosch
10:30am|Wolfensohn Hall

In our LCDM paradigm, galaxies form and reside in dark matter halos. Establishing the (statistical) relation between galaxies and dark matter halos, the `Galaxy-Halo connection', therefore gives important insight into galaxy formation, and also is a...
