Galaxy Formation with AMR: Supernova Feedback and Star Formation Relation

  Ji-hoon Kim [Home], John H. Wise, and Tom Abel

1. Parameters and Documentations

  - 1.8e10 Ms galaxy progenitors with 10% in gas, Evolved for 1.2 Gyrs
  - Radiative cooling, Star formation and feedback, Resolved by ~1e7 computational elements with finest resolution of 3.8 pc
  - For details, see the project summary in my homepage. Parameters and physics are described also in my ApJ Letter on galaxy mergers.
