    Identifying the disc, bulge, and intra-halo light of simulated galaxies through structural decomposition

    Full text link
    We perform a structural decomposition of galaxies identified in three cosmological hydrodynamical simulations by applying Gaussian Mixture Models (GMMs) to the kinematics of their stellar particles. We study the resulting disc, bulge, and intra-halo light (IHL) components of galaxies whose host dark matter haloes have virial masses in the range M200=1011M_{200}=10^{11}-- 1015M10^{15}\,{\rm M_\odot}. Our decomposition technique isolates galactic discs whose mass fractions, fdiscf_{\rm disc}, correlate strongly with common alternative morphology indicators; for example, fdiscf_{\rm disc} is approximately equal to κco\kappa_{{\rm co}}, the fraction of stellar kinetic energy in co-rotation. The primary aim of our study, however, is to characterise the IHL of galaxies in a consistent manner and over a broad mass range, and to analyse its properties from the scale of galactic stellar haloes up to the intra-cluster light. Our results imply that the IHL fraction, fIHLf_{\rm IHL}, has appreciable scatter and is strongly correlated with galaxy morphology: at fixed stellar mass, the IHL of disc galaxies is typically older and less massive than that of spheroids. Above M2001013MM_{200}\approx 10^{13}\,{\rm M_\odot}, we find, on average, fIHL0.45f_{\rm IHL}\approx 0.45, albeit with considerable scatter. The transition radius beyond which the IHL dominates the stellar mass of a galaxy is roughly 30kpc30\,{\rm kpc} for M2001012.8MM_{200}\lesssim 10^{12.8}\,{\rm M_\odot}, but increases strongly towards higher masses. However, we find that no alternative IHL definitions -- whether based on the ex-situ stellar fraction, or the stellar mass outside a spherical aperture -- reproduce our dynamically-defined IHL fractions.Comment: 17 pages, 12 figures, submitted to MNRA

    Quenching massive galaxies across cosmic time with the semi-analytic model SHARK v2.0

    Full text link
    We introduce version 2.0 of the SHARK semi-analytic model of galaxy formation after many improvements to the physics included. The most significant being: (i) a model describing the exchange of angular momentum (AM) between the interstellar medium and stars; (ii) a new active galactic nuclei feedback model which has two modes, a quasar and a radio mode, with the radio mode tied to the jet energy production; (iii) a model tracking the development of black hole (BH) spins; (iv) more sophisticated modelling of environmental effects on satellite galaxies; and (v) automatic parameter exploration using Particle Swarm Optimisation. We focus on two timely research topics: the structural properties of galaxies and the quenching of massive galaxies. For the former, SHARK v2.0 is capable of producing a more realistic stellar size-mass relation with a plateau marking the transition from disk- to bulge-dominated galaxies, and scaling relations between specific AM and mass that agree well with observations. For the quenching of massive galaxies, SHARK v2.0 produces massive galaxies that are more quenched than the previous version, reproducing well the observed relations between star formation rate (SFR) and stellar mass, and specific SFR and BH mass at z=0z=0. SHARK v2.0 produces a number density of massive-quiescent galaxies >1dex higher than the previous version, in good agreement with JWST observations at z5z\le 5; predicts a stellar mass function of passive galaxies in reasonably good agreement with observations at 0.5<z<50.5<z<5; and environmental quenching to already be effective at z=5z=5.Comment: Submitted for publication in MNRAS.

    The distribution of stellar orbits in eagle galaxies – the effect of mergers, gas accretion, and secular evolution

    The merger history of a galaxy is thought to be one of the major factors determining its internal dynamics, with galaxies having undergone different types or mergers (e.g. dry, minor, or major mergers) predicted to show different dynamical properties. We study the instantaneous orbital distribution of galaxies in the EAGLE simulation, colouring the orbits of the stellar particles by their stellar age, in order to understand whether stars form in particular orbits (e.g. in a thin or thick disc). We first show that EAGLE reproduces well the observed stellar mass fractions in different stellar orbital families as a function of stellar mass and spin parameter at z = 0. We find that the youngest stars reside in a thin disc component that can extend to the very inner regions of galaxies, and that older stars have warmer orbits, with the oldest ones showing orbits consistent with both hot and counter-rotating classifications, which is consistent with the trend found in the Milky Way and other disc galaxies. We also show that counter-rotating orbits trace galaxy mergers – in particular dry mergers, and that in the absence of mergers, counter-rotating orbits can also be born from highly misaligned gas accretion that leads to star formation

    Robotic milking technologies and renegotiating situated ethical relationships on UK dairy farms

    Get PDF
    Robotic or automatic milking systems (AMS) are novel technologies that take over the labor of dairy farming and reduce the need for human-animal interactions. Because robotic milking involves the replacement of 'conventional' twice-a-day milking managed by people with a system that supposedly allows cows the freedom to be milked automatically whenever they choose, some claim robotic milking has health and welfare benefits for cows, increases productivity, and has lifestyle advantages for dairy farmers. This paper examines how established ethical relations on dairy farms are unsettled by the intervention of a radically different technology such as AMS. The renegotiation of ethical relationships is thus an important dimension of how the actors involved are re-assembled around a new technology. The paper draws on in-depth research on UK dairy farms comparing those using conventional milking technologies with those using AMS. We explore the situated ethical relations that are negotiated in practice, focusing on the contingent and complex nature of human-animal-technology interactions. We show that ethical relations are situated and emergent, and that as the identities, roles, and subjectivities of humans and animals are unsettled through the intervention of a new technology, the ethical relations also shift. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht
