A fundamental test for stellar feedback recipes in galaxy simulations

Fujimoto, Yusuke; Chevance, Mélanie; Haydon, Daniel T.; Krumholz, Mark; Kruijssen, J. M. Diederik


Direct comparisons between galaxy simulations and observations that both reach scales ≲100 pc are strong tools to investigate the cloud-scale physics of star formation and feedback in nearby galaxies. Here we carry out such a comparison for hydrodynamical simulations of a Milky Way-like galaxy, including stochastic star formation, HII region and supernova feedback, and chemical post-processing at 8 pc resolution. Our simulation shows excellent agreement with almost all kpc-scale and larger...[Show more]
