Christine Simpson, "Simulating satellite galaxies and their debris in the Milky Way"

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 from to (US/Central)
at Building 362 ( Room F-108 )
I will discuss the Auriga simulations, cosmological simulations of Milky Way analogues that include full MHD on a moving mesh.  I will focus on satellite galaxies in the Auriga simulations and discuss the processes that shape their star formation histories.  I will also discuss their lives after death in the context of their tidal debris and how this debris may appear in phase space and impact our view of the Milky Way galaxy from the solar circle.
