Empirical Models for Dark Matter Halos. I. Nonparametric Construction of Density Profiles and Comparison with Parametric Models

Merritt, David; Graham, Alister; Moore, Ben; Diemand, Jürg; Terzic, Balsa


We use techniques from nonparametric function estimation theory to extract the density profiles, and their derivatives, from a set of N-body dark matter halos. We consider halos generated from ΛCDM simulations of gravitational clustering, as well as isol
