|Welcome to Prof. Sukyoung K. Yi's group (GEM) homepage
이석영 교수의 은하진화 연구 그룹 홈페이지에 오신것을 환영합니다.
The ultimate goal of our group is to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies. We work on various versions of galaxy formation theories, focusing on dynamical clustering of galaxies and galactic chemical evolution in combination with stellar population synthesis. We extensively, but not exclusively, use SDSS and GALEX data to test our theoretical models.

Early-type Galaxy Spin Evolution in the Horizon-AGN Simulation
We analyzed the Horizon-AGN simulation, a cosmological galaxy formation simulation to investigate
the differences in the evolution of ETGs with different spin properties. We found that massive central ETGs form through
numerous mergers and are preferentially very slowly rotating. However, group and cluster satellite ETGs, which are multiple times
more numerous than the massive central ETGs, show slow rotation but not because of mergers but because of environmental tidal interactions
such as fly-bys or tidal force of the cluster potential.
