 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The focus in cosmology is shifting from the determination of the basic cosmological parameters to developing an understanding of how galaxies formed. Progress in this field has been driven by a combination of computer simulation and observational breakthroughs. Over the next few years, groundbreaking new facilities will come online and will provide data of unprecedented quality with which to test theoretical models. The key objective of our proposal is to allow European scientists to play a leading role in advancing our understanding of galaxy formation, by forging new links and research collaborations with scientists in Latin America and China, which host some of these new experiments. Our research programme covers all aspects of numerical galaxy formation. In addition to building new research capacity, we will organise a series of events to avoid fragmentation of research expertise and to help train a new generation of galaxy formation modellers.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-funded project is collaborating with scientists across the world to conduct research into galaxy formation. The network aims to promote Europe's standing in this area of astrophysics at a global level.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

There is a current shift in focus in cosmology, from determining fundamental cosmological parameters to enhancing understanding of how galaxies are formed. Over the next few years, new groundbreaking facilities will come into being that will provide data of unprecedented quality to test theoretical models.

The EU-funded project 'Latin American Chinese European galaxy formation network' (http://www.lacegal.com/ (LACEGAL)) brings together internationally recognised experts in galaxy formation theory and modelling of the cosmic structure growth. Beyond Europe, the network is establishing new collaborations with research centres in China and Latin America that will host new exciting experiments. The project aim is to allow European scientists to play a leading role in advancing our understanding of galaxy formation.

LACEGAL is covering all aspects of large-scale structure and galaxy formation in the Universe, ranging from state-of-the-art theoretical predictions to model testing. Among others, one focus is on the first multi-hundred billion particle simulation for studying large-scale structure formation in the galaxy distribution. Scientists are now able to measure such structures based on a novel approach that does not require any assumption about the underlying cosmology.

Mock galaxy catalogues from the project's large simulations are helping to analyse ongoing and upcoming galaxy surveys. Furthermore, some photometric surveys have helped scientists identify galaxy clusters and groups.

Work has also resulted in developing a unique code for modelling modified gravity cosmologies. In addition, scientists have modelled Lyman-alpha photon transfer, matter accretion into supermassive black holes and gravitational wave emission.

A large number of secondments have taken place among scientists in Europe and China or Latin America. Project findings are published in 15 papers and are being disseminated at conferences and in workshops.
