Globular clusters in hierarchical galaxy formation
The formation and evolution of the globular clusters observed in our Galaxy is far from being well understood. It has been suggested that they may be the relics of the evolution of Young Massive Clusters, as well as they could form in dwarf galaxies. In order to disentangle their origin and evolution, high-resolution cosmological simulations are needed. The goal of this project is to implement a mixed code - a hierarchical cosmological simulation with a sub-grid evolution for star clusters - as well as to careful compare its outputs with observational data.
