Omega 500 Simulations

Set Characteristics

  • Simulation type: AMR
  • Box size: L = 500 comoving Mpc/h
  • Finest cell size: \(\Delta{x}_{\rm min}\) = 3.81 comoving kpc/h

Notes

  • Projected X-ray emissivities are computed using an APEC model (see the yt documentation on X-ray emission fields for details). In the non-radiative simulation, there is no metallicity, hence for computing X-ray emissivities for projections a spatially constant metallicity of \(Z = 0.3~Z_\odot\) is assumed.
  • All images are centered on the cluster potential minimum.

Cosmology

  • \(\Lambda{\rm CDM}\) cosmology
  • \(H_0 = 70~{\rm km~s^{-1}~Mpc^{-1}}\)
  • \(\Omega_m = 0.27\)
  • \(\Omega_\Lambda = 0.73\)
  • \(\Omega_b = 0.0469\)
  • \(\sigma_8 = 0.82\)
