The impact of quenching on galaxy profiles in the SIMBA simulation
MetadataShow full item record
We study specific star formation rate (sSFR) and gas profiles of star-forming (SF) and green valley (GV) galaxies in the SIMBA cosmological hydrodynamic simulation. SF galaxy half-light radii (Rhalf) at z = 0 and their evolution (∝(1 + z)−0.78) agree with observations. Passive galaxy Rhalf agree with observations at high redshift, but by z = 0 are too large, owing to numerical heating. We compare SIMBAz = 0 sSFR radial profiles for SF and GV galaxies to observations. SIMBA shows strong central depressions in star formation rate (SFR), sSFR, and gas fraction in GV galaxies and massive SF systems, qualitatively as observed, owing to black hole X-ray feedback, which pushes central gas outwards.
