Astronomy Colloquium - "The IllustrisTNG Simulations: Elemental Evolution in Cosmological Simulations"

|Event Contact:||Rebecca Bare
Department of Astronomy
I will give an overview of some of the new features of the IllustrisTNG models - a set of gravitational, hydrodynamical, MHD cosmological simulations aimed at resolving from the formation of galaxy clusters down to the structures of Milky Way dwarf galaxies. A brief overview of AREPO, the code used in these simulations, and updates from its first cosmological implementation in the Illustris simulations will be presented. I will conclude with some preliminary results on the distribution of elements in our simulations including alpha and r-process elements, and discuss ongoing efforts to robustly compare observational and simulated data.
