"Simulating Galaxy Formation"

Cosmological simulations of galaxy formation have evolved significantly over the last years  .In my talk I will describe recent efforts to model the large-scale distribution of galaxies with cosmological hydrodynamics simulations. I will focus on large-scale simulations like IllustrisTNG. After demonstrating the success of these simulations in terms of reproducing an enormous amount of observational data, I will also talk about their limitations and directions for further improvements over the next couple of years.
