AGORA - Assembling Galaxies Of Resolved Anatomy

Program Description: Project AGORA investigates galaxy formation with high-resolution simulations and compares the results across code platforms and with observations. AGORA is a comprehensive numerical study of well-resolved galaxies within the ΛCDM cosmology. Cosmological hydrodynamic simulations with force resolutions of ~100 proper pc or better will be run with a variety of code platforms to follow the hierarchical growth, star formation history, morphological transformation, and the cycle of baryons in and out of eight galaxies

Year Started: 2012.

Organization Description: This is a massive inter-institutional effort by 115 participants from 60 institutions worldwide

Data Description: The numerical techniques and implementations used in this project include the smoothed particle hydrodynamics codes GADGET and GASOLINE, and the adaptive mesh refinement codes ART, ENZO, and RAMSES. The codes share common initial conditions and common astrophysics packages including UV background, metal-dependent radiative cooling, metal and energy yields of supernovae, and stellar initial mass function.
