A NEWLY FORMING COLD FLOW PROTOGALACTIC DISK, A SIGNATURE of COLD ACCRETION from the COSMIC WEB
How galaxies form from, and are fueled by, gas from the intergalactic medium (IGM) remains one of the major unsolved problems in galaxy formation. While the classical Cold Dark Matter paradigm posits galaxies forming from cooling virialized gas, recent theory and numerical simulations have highlighted the importance of cold accretion flows - relatively cool (T ∼ few × 104 K) unshocked gas streaming along filaments into dark matter halos, including hot, massive, high-redshift halos. These flows...[Show more]
